Knox-Licking Vocations Club

Through mindful prayer and thoughtful outreach, the Knox-Licking County Vocation Club seeks to promote awareness among parishioners at Catholic churches in Knox and Licking counties to foster and support vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, and religious life. The club also offers prayers of gratitude and support to priests, deacons, and sisters serving in our diocese.

The group meets monthly for lunch in St. Leonard’s Parish Hall.  During the gathering, an invited speaker shares their vocational journey or gives insight into a vocational program happening within the diocese. During exam time, the group sends seminarians food items and small Christmas gifts to remind them they are being prayed for as they dedicate their lives to the Lord.  

A responsive grant from The Catholic Foundation helps increase guest speakers’ stipends and supports the group’s ongoing work to raise awareness of a calling to religious life. The Know-Licking County Vocations Club believes in the power of prayer—the Diocese of Columbus is expected to welcome twelve young men to the seminary in 2024. 

Membership is open to any Catholic in Knox and Licking counties. To join the Knox-Licking County Vocation Club, contact the church office at 740-522-5270.
