CCW Vocation Ministry
Upcoming Events

The vocation ministry's mission is to create an atmosphere in our parish that is supportive of religious vocation and provides information about events where young people and families can learn more about discerning this call. One of our goals is to increase prayers for vocations in our ministry and in our parish.  
As a group, we pray at the Visitation Adoration Chapel on the second Monday of each month. We meet a few minutes before 7 PM and pray from 7-8 PM.
Ministry members:
 Olive Cadaoas, Lauren Gaughan, Regina Hughes, Maureen Kenneally,
 Gretchen Meurer, Jennifer Morrissey, Mary Lou Rafferty

pro, Fr. Chase Hilgenbrink, and Joliet Seminarian Kyle Langan. It was attended by 
boys and girls from grades 6-12.
