Vocation Ministry has made it to the great white north to speak to the priests of Great Falls-Billings, Montana! This would be my longest priest workshop, so far. Even with the challenges of limited resources and small parishes, the wonderful priests of the Diocese of Great Falls-Billings were open and happy to hear how to create a culture of vocations in their parishes!
Bishop Michael Warfal (right) kept affirming the points I was making with the priests, and during breaks, he would recommend books for priest and seminarians that are now on vocationministry.com! Thank you, Bishop Warfal!
One of the best parts about traveling the country, besides seeing the US on the ground through a Catholic lens, is spending time with the Vocation Director of each diocese. Great Falls-Billings is no different as Fr. Garret Nelson (below) is an inspiring priest who loves serving the people and calling forth young men and women to say YES to the Lord! Have you prayed for your Vocation Director lately? Start now!
God bless you, one and all! St. Alphonsus Liguori, pray for us!
