Editorial Reviews

Review

One clear sign of the Holy Spirit at work in the Church today is the number of young adults who are responding to a sense of vocation and seeking to share their gifts in a variety of forms of ecclesial ministry. This volume will be a valuable resource for those who are trying to discern what their vocation is, those who accompany them as mentors, and all who are interested in new forms of ministry in the contemporary Church.
Mary Catherine Hilkert, OP
Professor of Theology
University of Notre Dame


Hearing God's call and choosing a life of service to the Church is one of the most important, and most difficult, decisions that a person can make. The authors of Catholics on Call: Discerning a Life of Service in the Church offer valuable insights into religious life and vocational discernment. This book is a wonderful resource for anyone who is in the process of vocational discernment. It is equally valuable for those who know someone who is considering an ecclesial ministry. A must read.
Rev. Martin O. Moran, III, Executive Director, The Catholic Campus Ministry Association


Some advice for all who minister to young adults: Read Catholics on Call with chapters by outstanding, pastorally sensitive authors (Donald Senior, Robert Schreiter, Robert Morneau, Thomas Rausch, Sheila McLaughlin, Charlene Diorka, Stephen Bevans, and Robin Ryan), who present helpful theological perspectives and practical suggestions for young adults discerning their vocation; give copies of the book to young people (it is written with them in mind) who may be interested in church ministry; form a group to discuss the book; and send some young adults to the informative and inspirational, ‘Catholics on Call’ summer conferences run by the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.
James J. Bacik, Campus Minister and Adjunct Professor, University of Toledo
