Vocations (CAVA)

Active for more than 35 years, the Chicago Archdiocesan Vocation Association (CAVA) is a ministry sponsored by the Office for Religious in the Archdiocese of Chicago. CAVA is an association of Roman Catholic Religious Sisters, Brothers, Priests, Consecrated Laity and others who are active in and supportive of vocation ministry.

CAVA is faithful to the call of Christ to cultivate and nurture a culture of vocation with the Archdiocese of Chicago. CAVA educates, strengthens, supports and accompanies its members, our youth and the young adult population in the ongoing discovery and discernment of their life vocation. Additionally, its mission is to articulate and witness the consecrated life and its place in the Church and world.

Ministering together, CAVA acts as a conduit for ongoing and future vocation ministry within the Archdiocese of Chicago, partnering and collaborating with parishes, organizations and individuals to raise awareness of Christian vocations, in particular, consecrated life.
