Director of Vocations
“I hope and pray this website helps you as you seek the Father’s will for your life, specifically as you discern your vocation. May this website be the start to exploring your vocational call in life to the Priesthood and/or the Consecrated Life. From here, I hope you explore the many resources that are out there: websites like DiocesanPriest.com and VocationNetwork.org, apps like the “Religion Life” app from CMSWR, books like To Save a Thousand Souls: A Guide to Discerning a Vocation to Diocesan Priesthood by Fr. Brett Brannan and Discerning Your Vocation by the Community of the Beatitudes. Finally, it is truly hard to discern a vocation to Priesthood or Consecrated Life without speaking to someone about it. I would encourage you to reach out to me or your own parish priests or religious brothers or sisters you know. You can call, email or text me, and I would be happy to help you on your own journey discovering all that God desires of you. May Our Lord Jesus Christ bless you abundantly and Our Lady and St. Joseph defend you and keep you safe.”
Heavenly Father,We ask you to bless our diocese with selfless hearts that are willing to serve You, by serving Your Church. Lord Jesus raise up from our homes those called by the Father: courageous and humble men to the Priesthood, faithful people to Consecrated Life and holy men and women to the sacrament of Marriage. Holy Spirit, help us to live our universal vocation to holiness, by listening to the Father’s voice and responding with a sacrificial love.
Holy Mary, Model of Vocations, teach us to hear and follow your Son. Holy Mary, Queen of Priests, sanctify our priests and obtain for us many more. Holy Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for our families and intercede for our children.
