Recently, we sent home an important notice regarding a change in how we will conduct parent-teacher conferences this year. We hope that this “adjustment” to our usual procedures will afford families and teachers a  more consistent and viable opportunity to work together in support of our students. Therefore, I ask that you please review this notice carefully.

Vocations Corner

The Brooklyn Diocese Vocations Office promotes vocations to priesthood and religious life throughout the diocese. It also serves men and women who are interested in discerning a vocation by means of retreats, discernment meetings, and providing information. The vocation director works individually with men discerning a vocation to diocesan priesthood, especially through the seminary application process. The Office also works with priests, religious, deacons, and laity to raise awareness about the need to work and pray for an increase in vocations, especially by working with Parish Vocation Committees.
