Vocation Discernment

Vocation Discernment

"What do I want to be?" "What do I want to do with my life?" These are questions we all ask ourselves, especially during our college years, as we choose majors and, sometimes, switch majors. However, behind these questions is one much deeper: "Who do I want to be?"

We are all called by God to live authentically. By virtue of our baptism, we are called to follow Christ every day of our lives. Most of us are called to be married, some to remain single, and still others of us are called to the religious life and priesthood. How is it that we come to know what God desires for us? This is at the heart of vocation discernment. As a Catholic university in the Augustinian tradition, Villanova seeks to help its students to discover how God is calling them in life.

If you wonder what life might be like as An Augustinian friar, or you are just curious about religious life, priesthood, or ministry in the Church, see Fr. Tom McCarthy, OSA, in the Vocation office and go to www.augustinian.org
