A St. Patrick Tradition for the last 17 Years

Our History: St. Patrick Parish in St. Charles, IL is the host of the HERE I AM LORD National Vocations Conference.  The conference was founded in 2003 to address the need of vocation awareness. The vocations of marriage, single life, religious life and the priesthood are all vocations in the eyes of God and the Church!  HERE I AM LORD provides an opportunity for young people and adults of all ages to recognize that fact.  The largest parish-based vocations conference in the United States brings together Religious from across the country to share the JOY of their vocation. The best Catholic speakers and musicians join to share the JOY of their vocation and faith.

Thanks for Joining Us and helping at the Crane Road Church for the Final Year of HERE I AM LORD as we celebrated Seventeen AMAZING & JOYFUL Years of Vocations Outreach!
