For Parents and Familes


Priests are not just born, they come from families like yours. 

Please promote vocations in your family!


How can you promote vocations in your family?



"Are you forming 'missionaries of the interior' in the very marketplace of their work life, their family life, their culture and their neighborhood?"


"Without work there is no bread, no wine, no altar, no Eucharist, no Church."


"Without Christian homes there are no priests, no religious, no missionaries, no apostles. If there is a shortage of priests and religious today, then one must look to how Christian are our homes? What kind of love exists inside them? What kind of value system does the family live by?"


- Cardinal Cardijn
