Do you know someone who would make a great priest?

Are you the family member or friend of a man discerning a vocation to the priesthood?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!

Answering the Call

We know that some people view becoming a Catholic priest as a radical decision. They are correct! It's a radical life! But, it's a wonderful life. It's a life filled with unique opportunities to reach out, bring peace and seek unity among God's people. And, as a Paulist Father, you may have the chance to share the Gospel in unexpected ways and in unexpected places. Be not afraid! God is with you!
