EXPLORING RELIGIOUS VOCATION

Vocation means a call.  Everyone is called by God to be and do.  Often, we use “religious vocation” to refer to a call from God to priesthood and full-time ministry.  To discover God’s calling is a journey, perhaps a lifelong journey.  We hope we can walk along side with you to discern the religious call together, support and encourage you step-by-step in your journey for the glory and praise of God.  Please talk to your priest today or consider joining one of the programs below.
