Are you connected?

We have a media presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We will be posting updates on our seminarians and religious, posting interesting and/or inspiring articles and pictures, playing games, asking for feedback and sometimes just trying to make you laugh. We are hoping to be able to reach more people in our diocese, in order to better keep them aware of what the Vocations Office is up to. Please do us a favor and like our Facebook page “Lafayette Office for Vocations“, follow our Instagram page (Lafayette Vocations) and our Twitter feed (@LafVocations). We need your re-tweets, re-posts and follows in order to reach a wider audience. Plus, we would love to hear from you and see your pictures and posts too! Thank you in advance for your support!

New Communications Assistant: Elisabeth Langenkamp

nw0On5wEw8tHa78Qm0HCX4rSKnv16QF_gfRSyYvsiIELori Muhlenkamp passes the communications torch to Elisabeth Langenkamp.

Here is a quick interview of Elisabeth so that you can get to know the person behind the computer:

I grew up in Zionsville, Indiana. I attended high school at Brebeuf for two years and Zionsville for the last two. I did my undergraduate work at Miami University in Oxford, OH, where I got a B.A. in Sociology and in Spanish, with a minor in Latin American Studies. I had a variety of jobs after college, ranging from camp counselor, ESL teacher, English teacher (in Spain), waitress and ballroom dance teacher, until I went back to grad school at Purdue for my M.A in Linguistics (Spanish). I taught Spanish at Purdue while getting my degree and then also at Marian University for a short time. Now I’m (mostly) a stay at home mom to my two boys, Xavier John, who is three and half, and Daniel Matthias, who is 10 months old.


I got married almost five years ago. John and I met, got engaged and got married in St. Boniface, where we are still parishioners. We were transferred for my husband’s job to Carmel for one year, then Orlando for two. We missed Indiana, especially our families and friends, and so went looking for another job that brought us back to Lafayette. John currently works in digital sales at Channel 18. We now reside in West Lafayette, a few blocks from campus. We are happy to be “home” and John is eagerly training our boys to be the next Purdue Petes and extreme Purdue fans like he was/is. You will definitely see us tailgating before games this fall.


I will be managing the communications side of the Office for Vocations—running the Facebook and Twitter feed while Father Hasser does the important things! I will also be putting together the Vocations newsletter and writing articles for the Catholic Moment. I see my job as fitting into education: letting others know what resources are available in the Office, as well as informing everyone about the wide span of activities that Father Hasser is doing. As a lay member of the diocese, I was unaware of all that the Office for Vocations and Director were doing. I hope to make others aware, so that they are able to pray for, prepare for and support vocations in the diocese, as well as within their own families and circles of friends. I’m excited to serve the Bishop and Father Hasser in this way. I ask your help in spreading the good news from the Office for Vocations, by word of mouth or by following us digitally (and asking your friends to do the same).

Evangelizing With Humor


Evangelization is one of the foundations of vocational recruitment. The age of social media has opened up new frontiers for spreading the Gospel, and faithful Catholics on the Internet have discovered the power of “memes” to educate others about Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church.  READ MORE>>
