~~~ New Mission -- Vocational Plan ~~~~~~~~

The shortage of vocations to priesthood and religious life in the church, especially in the Chinese communities is one of our major concerns that affect our faith and the evangelization.  As a Chinese community of the Diocese of Brooklyn for over 30 years, one of our priority goals is to raise a greater understanding of the value of vocations in our Chinese community; especially the promotion of the priesthood and religious life with the hope that a greater number of young people will reflect more deeply on these vocations as life choices.

Goal 1

Establish a Chinese Vocation Committee so as to cooperate and develop the spiritual programs for the youth of the community.

1 Year Objectives:
  1. Ask all parishioners to support the need of Vocations in their daily prayers.
  2. Have at least one member of each of the different groups join in the Vocation Committee.
  3. Have members of the Vocation Committee attend monthly meeting and pray for vocations to priesthood and religious life.

Goal 2

Recruit the Chinese Youth Group

1 Year Objectives:
  1. Invite all young people to attend Sunday Mass and monthly youth activities.
  2. Form and train an Altar Servers Group.
  3. Hold a Vocation workshop to introduce and educate young people on the Priesthood and Religious Life.

Goal 3

Promote vocation to the priesthood and religious life in Chinese people 

1 Year Objectives:
  1. Visit families and talk to parents about the need of Vocations and how they can support this concern.
  2. Have two pulpit talks in Chinese on Vocations to Priesthood and Religious Life during Sunday Mass.
  3. Organize “Come & See” Days in summer.
