A calling to the sacred priesthood of Jesus Christ is one of the most beautiful gifts that a Catholic man can receive.

If you are discerning your vocation and are wondering if you are called to the priesthood, there are many resources on this site that can help. Nothing compares to direct contact with a priest, however. Consider contacting your parish priest or your local Vocation Director, to discuss what God may have in store for you!
