Campus Ministry and the Newman Center is proud to serve as a partnering organization with Catholics on Call, whose mission is to support Catholic young adults (ages 18-30) as they strive to discover God’s call in their lives, and explore the possibility of a life of service in the Church. Catholics on Call is a national vocation discovery program of the Bernardin Center at Catholic Theological Union dedicated to helping young adults from diverse backgrounds explore a call to ministry in the Church and to learn about leadership roles as lay ecclesial ministers, men or women religious, or ministry as ordained deacons or priests. They host annual conferences as well as providing ongoing formation to past participants and a vocation-focused website. For more information, visit their website at www.catholicsoncall.org.
