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.

A St. Patrick Tradition for the last 17 Years

WE’RE REBOOTING the conference! Get in on the ground floor as we try something NEW! This is one of the BEST Events for Family & for hundreds of others who join us for meeting & speaking with the Religious Brothers & Sisters from various communities.
