Welcome to the Consecrated Religious Vocations page!
Dawn Hausmann is the Director of Consecrated Vocations and Coordinator of Young Adult Ministry for the Lansing Diocese. She has been serving the diocese of Lansing since 2010. She has a degree in Social Work from MSU and a Master in Theology from the Pontifical John Paul Institute for the Studies of Marriage and Family in Washington D.C. She has a passion for spreading John Paul II's Theology of the Body and for helping people journey in vocational discernment. She is in her own journey of discernment toward the vocation of Consecrated Virginity. She petitioned Bishop Boyea with the desire to become a candidate and is awaiting the Church’s response. She anticipates the day in which she will surrender her full life to the Lord forever in the journey of becoming a bride of Christ. Her interests outside of these areas are in anything that has to do with enjoying the outdoors: hiking, biking, and being in nature. Also, her new-found interest is d.i.y. home repairs. She realized this interest as she embarked on a quest to perform updates and repairs around her new home.
Please feel free to reach out. Dawn is here to help you during your discernment process.
