When Two Sisters Choose a Vocation to Religous Life. On March 19, 2004, my second oldest sister entered a cloistered Carmelite convent.

Our vocation stories are varied and personal, but the underlying truth to all vocation stories is that they are what should lead us to a relationship to him.

People have taught me to be a priest. And it is, I think, people who write the sermons, the best ones anyway.

My Vocation: I credit my vocation first to my parents who sacrificed so much so that my sisters and I might attend Catholic schools.

My Vocation Story: Part One I would like to share with you how I decided to become a Catholic priest. This was a decision I made in response to what I perceived to be God’s call.

I remember watching one of my.
