The Arlington Diocese Office of Vocations presents



"To know your vocation: ask God in prayer; ask one's spiritual director; ask oneself, knowing one's own inclinations."

 - St. Gianna Molla


Click on the logos to visit the Diocesan Vocational pages.

"Quo Vadis" means "Where are you going?" 

and its members are young men in high school who desire to grow in faithful discipleship and personal holiness to be better able to discover their own vocation invitation from our Lord, whatever that might be.

''FIAT'' is a Latin word for 'Let it be done'.

It was Mary's response to the angel Gabriel when she was asked to become the mother of Jesus. 'Let it be done unto me according to Your Will' refers to Mary's 'Yes' to God. The members of FIAT are young women in high school who desire to grow in faithful discipleship by modeling their personal holiness on that of our Lady. By doing so they hope to be better able to discover their own vocation invitation from our Lord, whatever that might be and make their own "fiat" or "yes" to Him.

Faith Direct is an excellent and easy way to support the parish while reducing the administrative costs of envelopes and saving our wonderful staff and volunteer’s precious time.
