Vocation Resources:

Announcements/ Newsletter Blurbs

One of the easiest ways to promote vocations is by incorporating different aspects of vocations into the morning announcements at a school, and it is free! Also, share information in the school newsletter, which has the added benefit of reaching families. Advertise upcoming activities and vocation-related days, write recaps of recent events, thank everyone who attended, and share success stories. Include photos at every opportunity to attract attention. In between activities, submit prewritten blurbs that will provoke thoughts about vocations. When students and adults are tuned in to ministry activities, the Holy Spirit can more easily work on their hearts and minds. Please edit the newsletter blurbs with your office of vocations information and share them with the school bulletin coordinator.

Notes:

Sample blurbs to begin publicizing an upcoming event:

  • Pope Francis is coming! Look for Pope Francis’ cutout at Field Day next week. Stop by the ministry booth and take a picture with our pope!
  • The students and faculty of St. Francis High School wish Fr. John a very Happy Birthday! You are such a gift to our school, and we are truly blessed to have your guidance and wisdom! Thank you for your “Yes” to the priesthood!

Sample morning announcement:

  • This Sunday, February 2, we will celebrate World Day for Consecrated Life. Over the years, many men and women have chosen to live out their baptismal vocation by professing the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, including Sr. Maria Faustina. She attended this school and is serving as a Sister of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration. Please pray for Sr. Maria Faustina and the consecrated in our world and ask God to bless our Church with others who will dedicate their lives to his service.
