Rhonda Gruenewald, author of “Hundredfold: A guide to Parish Vocation Ministry,” was our guest. She credits St. Pope John Paul II and his encyclicals as critical in her formation as a Catholic and in her service in building a culture of priestly vocations.

Her book walks parishioners through the important steps of praying for vocations, being aware of the need for vocations and educating oneself and others to that need, promoting vocations with the youth and young adults of the parish and the affirmation of priests.

Rhonda suggests that parishioners get a Mass kit for use with children and to adopt a seminarian as fruitful ways to create a vocation ministry at your parish.
