Vocations - God calls us all
The journey of discovering where God is calling you in life can be exciting, joyful, scary and difficult. However, God promises us peace when we find Him. The journey has brought you to this website. Here you will find many resources to help you hear Christ say "Be not afraid; come follow me." Nothing compares to direct contact with a priest or a woman religious. Please consider contacting a priest or a woman religious you know. Father Ross Parker, vocations director, can also journey with you as you follow Christ more closely.
