The Vocations Summit is for Catholics interested in helping to promote vocations. In our baptism we each are given a vocation and we are called to discern that calling. We may have a vocation to marriage, family, single life, consecrated life, priesthood or the diaconate. Whatever calling you have, the Vocations Summit is for you. <br> <br> The Vocations Summit will provide an opportunity for Catholics throughout the diocese of Albany to come together and discern how this calling can be lived out in their families, parishes, schools, and the work place. Our hope is that flowing from the Vocations Summit parishes, schools, church organizations, and societies will form Vocations Committees to encourage a Culture of Vocations throughout the Diocese of Albany. <br> <br> From this Culture of Vocations will come the future Ministers and Leaders of the Church, those who are called to Lay Leadership, Consecrated Life and Ordained Ministry. I am asking for your support, as Church leaders of today, to help plant the seeds to create a Culture of Vocations. I ask for your support for the Vocations Summit by your own attendance and/or the attendance of at least five members of your community who would be interested in helping us create this Culture of Vocation by helping to create Parish Vocations Committees. Of course attendance is not limited to five members of your parish, as this Summit is calling all Catholics of the Diocese. <br> <br> You can register for the Vocations Summit by simply going on line to either <a href="http://benchemail.bmetrack.com/c/l?u=60C4B92&amp;e=926C15&amp;c=8093B&amp;t=0&amp;l=9BE86C7&amp;email=B3MiLzk%2BzBGTOZnrsnLEjPSZfGEbnc9c&amp;seq=2" target="_blank"><span style='text-decoration:none;text-underline: none'>www.rcda.org</span></a> or <a href="http://benchemail.bmetrack.com/c/l?u=60C4B94&amp;e=926C15&amp;c=8093B&amp;t=0&amp;l=9BE86C7&amp;email=B3MiLzk%2BzBGTOZnrsnLEjPSZfGEbnc9c&amp;seq=3" target="_blank"><span style='text-decoration:none;text-underline: none'>www.albanyvocations.org</span></a>.
