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