VIDEOS to WATCH & DISCUSS

VOCATION PANEL DISCUSSION

WITH FR. JEFF EIRVIN, VOCATION DIRECTOR 

When a young man or woman begins to think about the possibility of a religious vocation the first thing they want to do is hear stories about how others answered the call. We often think that being called to the priesthood or consecrated life comes with the heavens opening up and God saying, “Be a priest!” “Be a sister!” Of course, that does not happen (too often). The call is usually more subtle and ordinary. Some say it is like falling in love. Listen to a Benedictine Monk (Br. Anselm Flores), a Carmelite Sister (Sr. Juana Maria), a Sister of St. Mary’s of Oregon (Sr. Maria Kieu Tran) and a diocesan seminarian (Matthew Knight) share a bit about their call.

MEN’S AND WOMEN’S RELIGIOUS COMMUNITIES

WITHIN OUR ARCHDIOCESE

Meet some of the men and women religious communities that are right here in the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon and learn about their particular charisms in the Church.

ACTIVITIES

VOCATIONS JEOPARDY

The world’s most famous trivia show – on vocations!

An awesome Powerpoint download that allows you to play a full round of jeopardy. Categories include Saints, Prayers, Bible Stories, and more. A fun and challenging game!

VOCATION BINGO

A printable classroom game

VOCATION CHARADES

An action guessing game

In this verison of charades, students will first receive a list of “vocation vocabulary words.” Then a student will act out one of the words or phrases as the classroom guess things like “convent” or “novice” or even harder, “charism.”
