                 PRESIDENTS MESSAGE MARCH 2011


  Our Diocesan Vocations Office, under the direction of

Father Miguel Sanchez, is working hard to create an

environment in our local Church that will nurture vocations to the priesthood and religious life.


  Bishop Ochoa has identified vocation development as a high   priority in our diocese. This seems to me, to set the stage for the Vocation Office to “harvest” vocations to the priesthood and     religious life. But few men step forward to enter the seminary unless they have had a personal experience with God either through the family, parish or school. In this regard, all of us are needed to  create a culture that will nurture vocations to        priesthood and religious life.


  The work of the Vocations Office is structured to “harvest”        vocations that are created by the entire Catholic

community. If our Church does not have continuing flow of

vocations to the priesthood, we need to look around in our family, in our parish and in our school to understand why this is           occurring.      Continued on page 2
