Seminarians process at night

Catholic Vocations

Our goal isn't just to educate but to help people find their place in the world. Campus Ministry supports students in their vocational discernment as they ponder on questions about where their talents meet the needs of the world.

Take a moment, say a prayer, and glance at some of the vocation materials here. We have discernment material, event calendars, and community information. May the Lord bless your discernment of where He is calling you!

Vocation Information

Find brochures in the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas or stop by the Campus Ministry office for information and to speak with the staff.

On-Campus Seminaries
