“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.” (Luke 10:2)
Archbishop John Carroll High School enthusiastically promotes and prays for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Students are invited to participate in annual days and evenings of discernment sponsored by Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary and religious communities. The Director of Campus Ministry, priest, and women religious on staff are available to speak with any student who is discerning God’s call in his or her life.
“Becoming a priest or a man or woman religious is not primarily our own decision…. Rather it is the response to a call and to a call of love.”
—Pope Francis, Address to Seminarians and Novices, July 6, 2013
your Son, Jesus, has shown us that an open heart finds the way.
Help me to find my way in this world.
Keep my heart open to following Jesus’ way of serving others in love.
Give me the courage to accept the guidance you offer me
through my family, my friends, and my parish community.
Through the Holy Spirit, you call me to a particular way of life.
If it is the way of a priest, sister, brother, or deacon, then help me to walk it in joyful service to your people.
With you, my God, I know I can find my way.
