Vocations workshop looks at meeting Hispanic Catholics' pastoral needs

Bishop John G. Noonan of Orlando, Fla., addressed the assembly Oct. 29 at Immaculate Conception Seminary in Huntington, N.Y. Bishop Noonan was the keynote speaker on the first day of a two-day Hispanic vocations workshop sponsored by the National Conference of Diocesan Vocation Directors.

HUNTINGTON, N.Y. -- As Jesus called His disciples in many ways, vocation directors and seminary faculty must walk with candidates and students to understand and meet their individual needs as they discern their call to priesthood, according to the bishop of Orlando, Fla.

Diocesan policies and seminary practices should accommodate varying expressions of prayer and cultural celebrations, particularly in the diverse and growing Hispanic Catholic community, said Bishop John G. Noonan.
