Vocations Curriculum

So many students hear about vocations only one time a year during a discussion of the sacraments. A more effective way to reach students is to allow them to explore information about vocations regularly. Students can learn about the priesthood, consecrated life, and marriage more thoroughly through the various vocation curricula options. Some of these can be purchased by a diocese or school, and others are free for all to use. Decide how you can sprinkle in age-appropriate lessons about vocations throughout the year.

For Love Alone is a short documentary film on the beauty and vitality of religious life. It is a powerful resource to share with your students when discussing and promoting vocations. These lesson plans will help you and your students get the most out of For Love Alone.

God has created each of us uniquely – to play a unique role in our time and our world. But how do we know what God is calling us to do? If He is calling us, why can’t we hear Him more clearly? What will we have to take on or give up if we follow His call?

These are the questions we’ll explore together in CALLED: Discover Your Vocation. With practical help and insights from presenters who’ve lived out these questions, CALLED walks through the importance of Vocation, how to discern Vocation as more than just a job, the call to the priesthood, and consecrated life, and the deeper meaning of marriage. CALLED includes five sessions on 5 DVDs for small group discipleship or individual study.

Videos, Leader Guide, and Participants Guide are offered Free on FORMED or can be purchased here:
