Mission Statement

What we do

Every person has a unique calling from God, and the Vocations Office of the Diocese of Joliet works to help all people discern and flourish in their calling as a priest, religious, deacon or spouse. God speaks to all of us and has a specific purpose for each of our lives, and a vocation is his holy invitation to pursue a religious life using the gifts He has given us.

We look forward to journeying with you as you seek the Lord’s will for your life.
