Starting the Conversation

Discernment is an adventure, but you need others that will help and support you along the way. That’s why it’s important to learn as much as you can, talk to others about their experiences, and reflect on your life up to this point in prayer. We’re here to help provide the resources you need to make the decision of whether or not the collar is right for you. Whether you’re just checking out your options, you’d like to talk to someone in person, or you think you’re ready, we’re here to help.

Prayer For Vocations
Heavenly Father, Bless your Church with an abundance of holy and zealous priests, deacons, brothers, and sisters. Give those you have called to the married state and those you have chosen to live as single persons in the world, the special graces that their lives require. Form us all in the likeness of Your Son, so that in Him, with Him, and through Him, we may love you more deeply and serve you more faithfully, always and everywhere. With Mary we ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
