New guidelines for promoting vocations

June 26, 2012
The Pontifical Congregation for Catholic Education released a pastoral letter with new guidelines for promoting priestly vocations.
Archbishop Zenon Grocholewski, prefect of the congregation, presented the letter during a press conference at the Vatican on Monday. The release of the letter also coincided with the 70th anniversary of the Congregation launching the Pontifical Work for Priestly Vocations.
Catholic News Service has an excellent article about the document and the new guidelines.
