Vocation Boom desires to help bring about an increase in priestly vocations in the United States and around the world, utilizing all of the new media that are now at our disposal.

We’re building a culture that’s open to the priesthood, clearing the path to discovery, and unlocking hearts and minds to God’s call.

Vocation Boom! is a non-profit initiative that is the fruit of more than twenty years of prayer and deliberation. It is a vision which began to take shape in the heart of Jerry Usher while he spent time in priestly formation from 1989 to 1995. Over the past two years, he and a few of his colleagues have been moving Vocation Boom! from idea to reality. Pope Benedict XVI’s recent proclamation of The Year for Priests is a confirmation of our intentions and an indication that now is the time to unveil Vocation Boom!

We have assembled a team of passionate partners consisting of top Catholic professionals in business, marketing, media and content development, as well as Church leaders, including priests, bishops, and vocation directors committed to guiding us on our journey. And we ask that you prayerfully consider helping us with this important endeavor.
