The Sacrament of Holy Orders
Our Lord calls some men to share in his priestly service and anoints them with the Sacrament of Holy Orders. If God has placed in your heart a desire for priesthood or religious life, do not take this lightly! Carefully examine where it is coming from and what it could mean. If you experience a calling to Priesthood, Religious Life, or Permanent Diaconate, seek out guidance and support so that you will be able to generously follow Our Lord.

Religious Vocation for Women
Our Lord calls some women to follow him as a religious nun or sister. This beautiful vocation leads to a deep spiritual union with Our Lord as a young woman on the day of her final profession becomes a 'bride of Christ'. All women who sense that God may be calling them to love Him and serve Him in this way should seek out guidance and spiritual direction.
