What do you really want to do with your life? Who do you want to be in your life? How does God speak to you about your life? This volume, like the Catholics on Cal program at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, raises these important questions. The highly respected essayists shed light on the variety of vocational paths in the church while providing insights about discernment, ministry, and prayer. They seek to offer young men and women information, guidance, and inspiration as they discern a life of ministry, and help them to discover that discerning a vocation is not a matter of choosing the more appealing of a variety of options; rather, it is an openness to discovering God's will.

Robin Ryan is a Passionist priest and associate professor of systematic theology at Catholic Theological Union. He also serves as director of Catholics on Cal, a national vocation discovery program funded by the Lilly Endowment, Inc.

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
