The Vocations Office promotes vocations to priesthood and religious life throughout the diocese. It also serves men and women who are interested is discerning a vocation by means of retreats, discernment meetings, and providing information. The vocation director works individually with men discerning a vocation to diocesan priesthood, especially through the seminary application process. The Office also works with priests, religious, deacons and laity to raise awareness about the need to work and pray for an increase in vocations, especially by working with Parish Vocation Committees.
