Holy Orders

A calling by God is such a gift and a joy.  Jesus tells us in the Gospel, “the harvest is great, but laborers are few, so beg the harvest master to bring more laborers to his harvest.”  ARE YOU being called to a vocation of service of God and his holy people as a Deacon or in the priesthood?  Here are some simple steps to follow to find out if you are...

  1. Pray every day. Have a solid prayer life where you can talk to God and listen for his call.  "Lord, help me to be, what you want me to be."
  2. Go to Mass regularly, including daily Mass, so that you can experience the greatest sacrifice that priests are privileged to share.
  3. Go to Confession regularly, so that your soul can be a place where Christ resides and directs you to respond to his invitation.
  4. Pray to find a worthy spiritual director who can answer your questions so as to help you discern God's call.
  5. Ask questions, talk to priests and seminarians to get any information you feel that you may need to help make an informed decision.
  6. Do Not Be Afraid!

If you feel that perhaps you're being called to the priesthood please speak with Fr. John Cyr or the Vocations Office comeandfollowme.org
