This winter we're launching a huge new effort in our diocese--establishing Vocation Ministries in every parish! Our goal is to help ALL young people hear and respond to the call of Jesus in their lives! To kickstart this effort, we're holding the Hundred-fold Workshop on December 1st at St. Patrick’s, Iowa City. This will be a high-energy, inspiring day where you'll truly learn what works to get our youth to be open to marriage, priesthood, and reli-gious life. All parishioners who would like to be involved in this exciting ministry are welcome to attend! Please visit to register or contact the Office of Vocations, 563-888-4378, to learn more about the Hundredfold Workshop.
