The Diocesan Vocations Office

All Christians are called to service by virtue of their baptism; the call to the specific vocations of priesthood and vowed religious life is the focus of the office for Priestly and Religious Vocations. The call to priesthood and religious life is heard at various ages and circumstances of life; programs for vocation education, awareness and recruitment are offered for children and youth at the grade and high school levels, as well as for men and women at college and adult levels.

God’s call is often incarnated through the words, example, and support of others; help us to awaken the call within those who seem to be called to ordination or vowed religious life.
