Building a culture of vocations

The message of the 2000 movie “Pay It Forward” — don’t pay someone back for the kindness they did to you, but give someone else an unexpected kindness like you received — resonates nearly a decade later, and takes on new forms.

In the Diocese of Evansville, Ind., the vocations office has unveiled an initiative called “Pray Them Forward” — the “them” being candidates to the priesthood or vowed religious life — to build a culture of vocations.

The Message, Evansville’s diocesan newspaper, focused on the initiative, which has its own online components, including its own Web site with blogs by priests.  The links to the Web site, which also have separate “Pray Him Forward” and “Pray Her Forward” pages, can be found at the bottom of the story
