Every person has a vocation which is given by God. Most people are called to the vocation of Holy Matrimony. If not called to the Sacrament of Matrimony, a person may be called to a life of celebacy within a religious community, or a life as a priest.
If you have experienced a call to discern a vocation as a priest or religious, you will find helpful information in these pages, as well as contacts to have a confidential talk about your life and God’s plan for you. Your life has purpose. We may be able to help you define, explore and discern God’s will for you.
