Next Steps

Within your discernment, there are many things that can aid both growing in relationship with the Lord, and obtaining clarity towards what He wants for your life.

  • Pray: asking the Lord to show you the vocation He has prepared for you and invites you to embrace.
  • Listen: to God and have the courage to respond to Him freely and generously.
  • Recite: the rosary, asking Mary, the Mother of Christ and the Mother of us all, to intercede with her Son on your behalf.
  • Make: Eucharistic Holy Hours, placing yourself in the Real Presence of the One who calls, the One who invites.
  • Read: and meditate on Sacred Scripture and other good spiritual reading including the lives of the saints.
  • Attend: Mass and receive Holy Communion as often as your state in life and current responsibilities will allow.
  • Go: to the Sacrament of Penance, frequently and consistently.
  • Serve: your parish, and elsewhere, as needed and as you are able.
  • Talk: with a priest, consecrated religious, or the Vocation Director about your vocation questions and concerns, seeking spiritual direction and guidance.
  • Visit: Bishop White Seminary to meet seminarians, join them for Adoration, Mass, and the Liturgy of the Hours, and ask them questions. Check back for a liturgical schedule of Bishop White Seminary.
  • Participate: in a Melchizedek Project discussion group, or Quo Vadis Days camp, or a Discernment Retreat. See a schedule of discernment events in the Diocese of Spokane.
