Holy Orders – Ministry of the Priest and the Permanent Deacon

The ongoing life of the church depends on vocations to the priesthood and to the permanent diaconate. Our diocese has a director of vocations and we’d be delighted to make an introduction for any interested candidates. Talk to any of the priests to get more information. The Diocesan website may also have useful information about Vocations in our diocese.
