The National Conference of Diocesan Vocation Directors is highlighted on this Vocation Boom! Radio episode. Jerry’s guest is NCDVD Executive Director Rose Sullivan, a passionate advocate for priestly vocations.
Rose came from a marketing background to initially assist her diocesan Vocation Director and was later led to lead the vocation apostolate in 2009. She says she serves the Church and its priests everyday to promote and cultivate vocations through prayer and discernment. She says we are all called to be a disciple of Christ, not to serve ourselves, but to support one another. Rose adds “the Priesthood is about service.” She says the single most thing a person can do to support the priesthood is through prayer.
Rose advised men considering the priesthood to trust, one day at a time, in discernment.
When hearing God’s call, Rose shared, “you need to contact your parish priest and local vocation director, spiritual director, read scripture, go to Mass and benefit from the sacraments.”
