“Do you find him to be worthy?”: Engaging in the Formation Process as Vocation Director
June 1, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. EST – Rev. Brian Buettner
While many people are responsible for the priestly formation of a seminarian, it is only the Vocation Director that stands before the bishop and testifies if a man is ready for Holy Orders, speaking on behalf of many others. Therefore, it is important for the Vocation Director to be an active member of the formation team. This webinar will focus on strategies to properly engage the seminarian throughout the process so when the day of his ordination arrives, the Vocation Director can be confident that his testimony is true.
