“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
-Proverbs 3:5

Discerning God’s call for your life can be a daunting journey, especially if you try to do it alone. Recognizing the need for vocational accompaniment, Vocations Outreach has created a system to pair discerners with mentors who will walk with them as they discover God’s call for their lives. Program requirements are meant to ensure the best possible experience for both you and your mentor, with the ultimate goal being your spiritual growth.


Program Requirements

  • Applicants must be discerning a call to consecrated religious life in the Catholic Church.

  • Applicants must be Catholic.

  • Program applicants must be between the ages of 15-30 years old to participate in the program with a Vocations Outreach mentor. Discerners over the age of 30 are still welcome to apply as age exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis.

  • Applicants must have frequent access to a computer and must be willing to engage in long-distance communication with their mentor and critical friend.

  • Applicants must be fluent in English.


Program Expectations

  • The online formation workshops will take place on the Catechetical Institute’s Learning Management System (LMS). Discerners will be expected to become familiar with this system.

  • Discerners should be prepared to set aside 1-2 hours each week for formation.  Discerners consistently failing to complete formation tasks may be dismissed from the program.

  • Program participants must maintain communication with their mentor and critical friend during the course of the program.
