“Every aspect of the life of the priest must reflect the deep meaning of his vocation, which is to serve with love” – Cardinal Donald Wuerl
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.
The life of a priest is busy, demanding, challenging—and incredibly rewarding. The vast majority of priests live happy, fulfilling lives. They love the people they serve, and in turn, are loved by their parishioners.
“My desire for a wife and children is so strong, I don’t think I can be celibate.” Join the club! Even Pope Francis felt that way when he was a young man. But with God’s grace, anything is possible! Don’t let fear of celibacy prevent you from exploring a call to the priesthood.

Could God be calling you to be a priest?
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.
