Vocation Station FAQ

Why such a high-quality piece of church furniture?

People pay attention to quality. And because of the importance of vocations—especially when the number of priests, religious and even marriages continue to fall—we need to address the topic with the degree of excellence it deserves. We as a Church need to do a much better job presenting the vocation options for faithful Catholic men and women.

Do vocations warrant this much emphasis?

Here’s the way we look at it: aside from the decision to follow Jesus, your vocation is the most important decision you will ever make. Every parish in America should be helping its members, especially young people, to listen to God’s call. And more than that, we should be equipping older adults already in their vocations to encourage the next generation.

Is this a niche product for youth?

No, the Vocation Station is for all parishioners, not just teens and young adults. It contains materials for children, parents, and older adults, too (because even grandparents can foster and pray for vocations). The Church teaches that encouraging vocations is everyone’s business: “It is the duty of the whole Christian community to foster vocations so that the needs of the sacred ministry are sufficiently met in the entire Church.” Canon #233.1

What is the Discernment Books option?

The Vocation Station comes standard with smaller pieces like cards, pamphlets, and short booklets. However, the "Discernment Books" option adds full-length books for serious discerners (and their parents). Your initial order will come with six copies of each of To Save a Thousand Souls, A Living Sacrifice, Discerning Religious Life, and A Priest in the Family—a $462 value for only $270. Plus you automatically receive a 25% discount on all future orders of these titles. With the Discernment Books option, your vocation station’s base will have a bookshelf instead of doors.

What good will books and brochures do, anyway?

The solution to the vocation crisis is discipleship—offering Jesus our whole hearts and lives, then following where he leads. The parishes that produce vocations have faithful families and warm, enthusiastic priests who bring youth to Christ and accompany them as they discern their vocations. One-on-one invitation and mentorship is absolutely essential. That said, in the typical parish, there is a lot of confusion surrounding the priesthood, religious life, and even marriage. People need good information. If people have bad or incomplete information, they are likely to make bad decisions. Good booklets and brochures aren’t the complete answer to our vocation crisis—but they sure do help. And the alternative, in many cases, is to offer nothing.

Is there a donation box included?

No, because we believe it's a normal function of the parish to provide its members with education on all Catholic vocations. However, if funding is a concern, many pastors find that donors are eager to fund the promotion of vocations.

When will I receive my Vocation Station?

Production time is approximately six weeks. We’ll let you know via email when your display is on its way.

How does the Vocation Station ship? Is it hard to assemble?

Your Vocation Station will come in three separate boxes weighing approximately 65lbs, 55lbs, and 30lbs. Assembly is easy. The shelving unit sits on the base and is held by four screws. The arched top slides into place and is held by five screws. The acrylic sign is installed using high-quality aluminum hardware with pre-drilled holes.
