As you begin to explore what God asks of you in this earthly life, you may not be 100% sure of God’s specific plan for your secondary vocation. Seeking clarity as to what God calls you is the process of discernment. One of the Vocations Office’s primary functions is to assist young men and women through this process, providing you the resources and connections you need to identify and follow God’s call.

You must never think you are alone in deciding your future! And second: when deciding your future, you must not decide for yourself alone!

Blessed John Paul II
