The B.C. Catholic has a story by Evan Boudreau about a new vocations program in to be launched in Ontario's Catholic elementary and high schools:
“If we don’t begin discussing vocations early on, then we shouldn’t be surprised that few consider vocations later in life,” said John Kostoff, director of education at the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board.

To that end, Kostoff, in partnership with the archdiocese of Toronto vocations office and Cardinal Thomas Collins, spearheaded a project to open a dialogue in elementary and high schools about the vocations of priesthood, religious orders, marriage, and single life.

Called “Make The Call, Vocation Lessons,” the program is the first of its kind developed locally, Kostoff said. It was three years in development and field testing, and will be available for purchase at the end of November.
