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.
