Discerning a Camillian Vocation

The very first step anyone must take before entering a Camillian vocation, or any vocation, is taking some time to learn and understand every aspect of the ministry.

The Camillian ministry is one of action, humility, and often danger. We are out in the “trenches” every day serving the sick, treating diseases such as leprosy and AIDS in neighborhoods and areas of the world that can be unstable and risky.

The calling to the Order of St. Camillus is one taken by few, but appreciated by many. When answering God’s call in life, whether to this Order or to another journey, you will go through a discernment journey – and we are here to help in your own personal exploration.

Every individual who is considering entering some form of religious vocation or work faces a number of difficult questions, and most can benefit from some help. Each ministry has its own dynamics – just as you have your own unique personality.

Is an action and travel-based “call to service” (such as the Camillians) best for you – or are you better suited for a quieter, behind-the-scenes Order?

We can help you find the answers.

Together, we can meet and discuss the possibilities, the pros and cons, what it’s really like being a Camillian. In a meeting like this, we can provide resource directions for your own perusal as well, from informational websites to periodicals.

If during the journey of discernment it becomes apparent that a different religious vocation fits you best, then we’ll help you make contact with them.
