Whether single or married, religious sister or brother, deacon or priest, each of us is called to help bring Christ’s salvation to the world!
As Catholics, we have grown accustomed to talking about vocations as Church ministries. Really, our vocation is participation in the essential ministry of helping one another to see our lives as a response to God’s call. Baptism is a call to action!
As baptized Christians, we pursue our work, leisure, and everything in between with a commitment to serve God and one another. In marriage, the bride and groom make a permanent, lifelong commitment that will reflect the love of Christ for the Church. In priesthood, a man commits his life to the people of God. A religious sister or brother makes a similar commitment to a religious community.
If you have never thought of yourself as having a vocation, now is the time to redefine yourself as a person whose ministry is a way of life.
The path to the Priesthood starts here. A vocation to the priesthood is a response to the love of God in one’s life. It is also a life of self-sacrifice that is aimed to restore and recover a love of God in the world.
For more than 150 years, Saint Francis de Sales Seminary has formed the minds, hearts and souls of men discerning their call to Catholic priesthood.
The Office for Diaconate Formation provides distinct ministry preparation for Catholic men discerning a vocation calling to the permanent diaconate.
Lay Formation gives adults the opportunity to enrich and deepen their faith through adult formation programs, opportunities and resources for those who are grieving, and the Pentecost Mission for adult Catholics who want to grow in the knowledge of their faith.
