  • To offer a forum of mutual support for discerning a call to a priestly vocation.
  • To assist the spiritual growth of those considering diocesan priesthood as a possible vocation response.

"Ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest." (Lk 10:2)

Prayer for Vocations
Holy Spirit, eternal Spring of joy and peace
it is You who open the hearts and the mind
to the divine call;
it is You who make effective every impetus
towards good, towards truth, towards charity.

Your 'inexpressible groans'
rise up to the Father for the heart of the Church,
which suffers and struggles for the Gospel.

Open the hearts and minds of young men,
so that a new flowering of holy vocations to the priesthood
may show forth the fidelity of Your love,
and all may know Christ,
the true light of the world
to offer to every human being
the sure hope of eternal life. Amen

-- Pope John Paul II

If not us, Who?
If not here, where?
If not now, when?
If not for the Kingdom, why?
