Diocese of Ogdensburg

The Roman Catholic Church in Northern New York

What is D.O.V.S.?
The Diocese of Ogdensburg Vocations Society is a group of faithful Catholics with the intention of promoting and supporting vocations to the priesthood, permanent diaconate, and consecrated religious life throughout the North Country.

What Do They Do?

  • The Annual Pilgrimage for Vocations

Sometimes we travel to Canada, other times we stay in the States.  Some years we do an overnight or two, other years it is simply a day trip.  But it is always to a holy shrine with the expressed purpose of praying for Vocations.

  • Production of Vocations Materials

Holy cards to be used in the parishes, Vocations books for the Catholic Schools, and advertisements in the North Country Catholic are funded by D.O.V.S.

  • Personal Support

Understanding that no Vocation is lived in a vacuum, D.O.V.S. support vocations by sending cards, hosting meals, and gifting Christmas care packages.

How Do I Join?
Most months we have a meeting the third Wednesday in Norfolk at 11:30 am.  All are welcome regardless of whether they are due paying members.  You can also call Connie Randall, the D.O.V.S. secretary, at 315-265-2762 for more information.
