Called to Serve: Vocations and Lay Ministry

A Resource for the Diocese of Brooklyn

Through the Sacrament of Baptism every Christian has a vocation – a call from God – to holiness and service. This call is lived out by being single, married, ordained as a priest or deacon, or consecrated as a religious brother or sister. The Holy Spirit invites all of us to share our gifts, talents, and lives in service to others. Jesus calls us from a silent voice deep within to “Come and follow me.”
