Holy Orders





Ordination to the priesthood is always a call and a gift from God.  Those who seek priesthood respond generously to God's call using the words of the prophet, "Here I am, send me" (Is 6:8).  This call from God can be recognized and understood from the daily signs that disclose his will to those in charge of discerning the vocation of the candidate. Do you think you might be receiving a call to the priesthood or religious life? For more information please contact:
