You have a vocation! Your home parish and community is the primary place to discern that vocation. For further assistance, we can help.

If you are interested in learning more about vocations or are discerning a vocation to diocesan priesthood contact Fr. Justin Ryan or one of our three Associate Directors of Vocations for next steps*.

Office of Vocations Mission

The Office of Vocations is a service of the Office of the Vicar for Clergy. We celebrate God's universal call to holiness by helping foster a culture of vocations in our families, parishes and schools. We also promote and identify potential vocations to the priesthood and diaconate, while assisting men's and women's religious communities in their efforts to invite new vocations.

“It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.”

~ John 15:16
