National Vocation Awareness Week (NVAW) is an annual week-long celebration of the Catholic Church in the United States dedicated to promote vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life through prayer and education, and to renew our prayers and support for those who are considering one of these particular vocations.

The military chaplaincy is a “vocation within a vocation.” It is a priestly ministry to people in military service to their country. As a sacramental ministry, the military chaplain brings Christ and the healing presence of the Church to women and men serving in an endless range of stressful, dangerous, and often life-threatening circumstances. Providing for the spiritual and sacramental needs of men and women in uniform is an essential task, and Catholic military chaplains are in higher demand now than ever before.
