Hands of Mary are those who act as the liaisons between the parish and the Office of Vocations, to better facilitate coordination, communication, and promotion of vocations in our diocese. Hands of Mary work directly with the pastor or parish life director to promote vocations to the priesthood and religious life in that parish. The Office of Vocations is happy to assist in any way we can.
