If you or someone you know feels called in a special way to explore the possibility of becoming an ordained priest or a vowed religious sister, arrange to speak with a priest. Your vocation is a gentle call with profound potential, and an irreplaceable gift from God to our Catholic Church.
Discerning a vocation requires both clarity and courage. Arranging a time to speak with a priest or religious sister will help give you the knowledge necessary to make the right choice. In addition, our parish priest can refer you to retreats and resources, specifically targeted to a discerning heart.
For more information regarding vocations, visit www.vocation.com, a Catholic online destination filled with discernment resources. To speak with our pastor, Rev. T Christopher Redcay, call the parish office or contact us by email.
O Holy Spirit, Spirit of wisdom and divine love, impart Your knowledge, understanding, and counsel to youth that they may know the vocation wherein they can best serve God. Give them courage and strength to follow God’s holy will. Guide their uncertain steps, strengthen their resolutions, shield their chastity, fashion their minds, conquer their hearts, and lead them to the vineyards where they will labor in God’s holy service. Amen.
