The vocation office of the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland serves all those discerning a vocation so that they may receive clarity through the Holy Spirit and the courage to act.
When making a decision about a vocation, you enter a process of discernment. Discernment is a process by which you discover the calling God has in your life. It helps us distinguish between the main types of lifestyles: single life, married life, religious life, and ordained life.
Discernment is best completed when several factors are involved: prayer to God, honest questioning about one’s life, and sincere conversation with respected friends in our life about our own gifts and talents.
