After 15 years of successful fund-raising for the Vocations Office in the Diocese of Phoenix, in 2021, the annual Bill Folz Memorial Golf For Vocations golf tournament will be introducing The Vocations Cup Trophy.
The award is meant to highlight a parish that is leading the way in supporting and promoting vocations in the Diocese.
Each participating parish will be awarded points based on parishioner participation in the golf tournament, Pastor and/or Parochial Vicar attendance at the golf tournament luncheon, and the number of current seminarians from the parish. A random drawing will then be done from all qualified parishes with the winner hosting The Vocations Cup Trophy at their parish for the next year.
The trophy itself is a scale model of a 1st century fishing boat like the ones that Peter and Andrew used before they left their lives as fishermen to become ‘fishers of men’.
We are excited about this new award and look forward to continuing a long-term legacy of recognizing and promoting increased parish support for seminarians in the Diocese of Phoenix.
