Vocations Curriculum

To Make God Known, Loved and Served is a vocations curriculum offered as a free download. The intent is to provide these resources to grade school teachers and catechists to assist them in their efforts to help students come to a deeper appreciation of the Church’s vision of vocation. It is the hope that through engaging this curriculum the students themselves will begin to consider God’s call in their own life. 

This curriculum was developed as the collaborative effort of the Office of Vocations of the Congregation of Holy Cross' United States Province of Priests and Brothers and the Alliance for Catholic Education of the University of Notre Dame and received the Imprimatur from Most Rev. Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend on January 14, 2014. The material can be downloaded to use for individual lessons or downloaded, printed and assembled into resources for ongoing use.
