Holy Orders


Are you hearing the call that God is giving you? 

Is your answer “Here I am Lord”? 

It seems that every guy thinks about or prays about whether they are called to serve the Church as a priest or deacon at some point in their life. 

Check out our YouTube videos below and start your discernment process, or encourage someone to consider becoming a priest, sister, or religious.  It is our responsibility as Catholics to encourage and invite young men to consider this great call to follow God in service of the church.  

God is waiting….
