Pastoral Guidelines for Fostering Vocations to Priestly Ministry
The Congregation for Catholic Education published a new document Pastoral Guidelines for Fostering Vocations to Priestly Ministry to address the constant challenge for the Church in fostering vocations to the priesthood. Families, priests, parishes and educators are all challenged by this document to create an environment that reflects God’s love for His people that would allow young men to follow a call to the priesthood.
Parents are “by word and example…the first heralds of the faith with regard to their children. They should encourage them in the vocation to which is proper to each child, fostering with special care any religious vocations.” (Lumen Gentium 11).
