Wonderfully, the Greek Catholic Order of Saint Basil in Ukraine is not short of vocations. Currently there are 48 novices in formation at the seminary in Lviv. In all, the Basilian Order has some 340 members in 29 different monasteries. Their novice house is in Kharkhiv, in East Ukraine, and has its own land and livestock around it.
There is good news from the Diocese of Sambalpur in the eastern Indian state of Odisha: the number of vocations to the priesthood has been continuously growing over the last few years. This is in no small part because the diocese has launched an active vocation apostolate in the schools, which introduces young people early on to the idea that they could be called by God.
