Office of Vocations

For National Vocation Awareness Week (Nov 5-11) the Vocation Office has filmed a series of videos (http://www.diobelle.org/vocations) featuring testimonials of native vocations from the Diocese of Belleville.  Please scroll to the bottom of the Vocations page to view information about these inspiring videos.  We strongly encourage you to share these with principals, DREs, teachers, catechists, and youth ministers so that they may utilize them.

Also, a new diocesan vocation poster (http://www.diobelle.org/vocations) is now available.
