Vocation Directors Virtual “Come and See” Date Set

January 23, 2024

Diocesan and Religious Institution Vocation Directors are invited to attend a virtual “Come & See” hosted by The Labouré Society admissions team from 1:00 – 2:00 PM CST on Thursday, March 14, 2024. The virtual event provides an overview of Labouré’s program, the opportunity to hear from program alumni and other vocation directors, and includes an optional Q. and A. session afterwards.

“In my work in my vocation ministry at my monastery, we do often encounter women who have college debt as one of the issues to their coming into their vocation,” shares Sr. Lisa Maurer, OSB, Vocation Director of the Benedictine Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery. “I’ve been so impressed with the whole [Labouré] program; with the organization, with the flow of it, with what’s asked of the people who are participating in it, so impressed by the professionalism. The whole basis of this program is so dedicated and so layered and so rooted in who and what we are as Catholics; I just find that amazing and…uplifting. It’s very rooted in prayer and very grounded in who and what we are as Catholics. [I’ve] also been impressed with the results….”

Fr. Scott Jabo, Rector of St. Mark’s Seminary and Vocation Director for the Diocese of Erie, agrees. “It seemed too good to be true, [but] the organization is legitimate. I’ve been blown away by what [the Labouré] program is all about. It is highly principled on the Catholic faith; it is a spiritual experience for the young men and women involved; it is transformative; it changes their lives, while also helping them remove the barriers to their vocation. It presents opportunities not only for reduction of debt, which certainly is fruit of the program, but….everything [Labouré] is doing is very compatible with the formation program that we have at the seminary level.”

Vocation Directors may register for Labouré’s virtual “Come & See” by calling 651-212-4878.
