Do you consider your occupation more than just a job?

Is it more like a vocation, a “calling,” in which you are using God’s gifts to serve and make life better for others?

If this describes your career choice, we would like to hear from you. The Catholic Spirit is currently preparing a special issue on vocations and careers for early June. We want to hear from Catholics from a range of occupations — from the traditional to the non-traditional to the unusual.

Please send us your name, parish, email address, telephone number and a short description of your occupation and why you consider it a “calling.”

You may send the information one of two ways:

• By email to: Please write “Careers” in the subject line.

• By postal mail to: “Careers,” c/o The Catholic Spirit, 244 Dayton Ave., St. Paul, MN 55102.

We will publish a selection of responses in the special issue, June 7, and online at The issue also will include a section highlighting religious vocations.
