Welcome to the Serra Promotion And Resource Kit (SPARK!)  Brought to you by the U.S. Council of Serra International, SPARK is a free online collection of best-practices tools in religious vocations ministry—as curated from parishes, dioceses, and religious orders around North America.

Created by a group of experienced laypeople with a longstanding devotion to the Roman Catholic Church, SPARK covers everything from discernment retreat agendas to vocations talks to using social media in vocations promotion…and much more!

Whether you’re recruiting potential priests, sisters, deacons, nuns, or brothers, you can find a helping hand right here.  Nearly two dozen topics are covered.  For each topic, you will find:

• An executive summary

• An outline

• A section on the history and development of the topic

• Downloadable resources and templates

• Links to additional resources

• A place to share your comments, questions, and ideas

If you are new to the vocations ministry, SPARK will help you build a strong, solid foundation.  If you are a veteran, SPARK will give you more resources with which to further your ministry.  Just click on the ‘TOOLS’ tab above to get started—or use the search bar at the top of this page to enter keywords and find what you’re looking for.

Thank you for visiting, and thank you for your efforts to build up the Church!
