A SACRED VOCATION
What is the Priesthood?
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.
Why Be a Priest?
More than ever, priests are desperately needed to bring the light of Christ to a confused world.
