When you write a book, you never know who, if anyone, is actually going to read it! My prayer was that someone would not only read it, but also start praying for and bringing awareness to vocations at their parish.

Each diocese has a Vocation Director, and in the US, each one received a copy of Hundredfold: A Guide to Parish Vocation Ministry but not in Canada. I heard nothing for two agonizing months, but in August, I received this email from Canada:

 

fr-patrickAs diocesan vocations director, I have wanted to establish individual parish vocation ministry for some time now, but I was always worried about how I was going to sustain these groups, and to ensure they have proper resources, formation and ideas.  Your book and website answered those concerns (and prayers!).  This September, I am offering 6 training sessions in the various regions of the diocese of London, Ontario, Canada, for all of our parishes to begin using your book and resources.  So, God willing, by October our 116 parishes will begin their pre-launch phase of ministry, and each will have received a copy of your book.  I will keep you posted on our progress, and please keep us in your prayers as well!

Fr. Patrick

WOWOWOWOWOWOW! I was in tears reading this amazing affirmation! Fr. Patrick bought Hundredfold on his own to read and then bought them for all the parishes in the diocese, too! My world was spinning in the best possible way!

Throughout this journey, whenever I am in doubt or in need of affirmation about the work I have undertaken, God sends me, what a dear friend described to me as a Kiss from Heaven! Fr. Patrick had no idea what a blessing his words had been for me and the mission of Vocation Ministry! God bless all Vocation Directors around the world, who work day in and day out helping young men and women find their calling in life.

God bless you, too!

St. Alphonsus Liguori, pray for us!

Testimonials

I think this book will do so much good. I know you wrote it with much prayers and love, and it is a product of your dedicated works in the ministry of vocation. You have blessed our vocation office and the vocation ministry at St Cecilia and here in the Archdiocese abundantly! May the Lord bless you and He abundant fruit to your work!

Fr. Dat Hoang, Former Vocation Director for Archdiocese of Galveston Houston

Vocations to the Priesthood and religious life can only evolve in a culture which nurtures a positive response to God’s calling whether that be in the home, school or church. Without a doubt, a robust parish vocation mission is the perfect means of cultivating such an environment in all three places. Rhonda Gruenewald has developed a full proof method of creating and sustaining a bountiful vocation mission in every parish. Her work is truly the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Margo P. Geddie, Vice President for Communications for Serra US 

This book will be a useful tool for parishes in our Archdiocese and beyond. We frequently have pastors and parishioners who ask for help to initiate or revitalize their parish vocation committees. Having a manual coming from a parish’s practical experiences and with electronic forms available on the website will enable us to respond to their needs. We look forward to having it as a resource as we continue to build a culture of vocations for the sake of our Church and society.

Sr. Anita Brenek, CDP, Associate Director, Office of Vocations Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston

To have all of these activities in one well thought out piece with such prayerful consideration and documented practice is a lovely example of Divine inspiration paired with the willingness of servant's hearts in answering His call. This is a beautiful example of what can be done with the collaboration of gifts bestowed to us while listening to the call of our Lord. It will become a gift to many in seeking a clear path to promoting vocations. "Well done, my good and faithful servant" Matthew 25:21. It is a masterpiece!

Anne Shepherd-Knapp, Chairman, Serra US Vocation Committee Deputy Governor, District 10 President, The Serra Club of Spring-1960 Area

The workshop provided practical steps to address a pressing need in our diocese. The wide gamut of possibilities allows large and small parishes to DO something. Rhonda is good at responding to questions and has lots of practical experience, both positive and negative.

Very Reverend Jay Peterson, Vicar General Diocese of Great Falls-Billings

The most beneficial aspects of the workshop are the book, the website and downloadable materials, and the practical nature of “how to”. You were also encouraging in the many ways pastors/priests are trying to encourage vocations.

Monsignor Mark Merdian, Diocese of Peoria, Illinois
