Seminarians 2013

Welcome to our website!  A video from the Vocation Director:

God made you for a unique purpose.  Even before you were born, he knew your vocation, your mission in life.  And if you are a faithful Catholic man, God may be calling you for a higher purpose - to become a Catholic priest.
Priests have a critical mission: to bring people to Jesus and Jesus to people.  They are spiritual fathers to thousands of Catholics.  They preach the Gospel and offer the sacrifice of the Mass.  In short, priests are living witnesses of Christ in the world - men of strong character who stand out in our secular culture.
A good priest is a spiritual hero, a man who sacrifices himself for the people of God.  Is Jesus calling you to be his priest?
