In the Catholic tradition, we call a special call to the priesthood or religious life a vocation. It's a call that shows itself through a period of discernment: through prayer, personal reflection, conversations and affirmations.
Your home parish is an ideal place to discover a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. We hope to be a help to you as you discern where God is calling you. Please contact our pastor if you would like to make time to discuss what a vocation is and where you feel your life may be going.
Please check out the Vocations page for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany for some great resources for someone discerning a vocation to the priesthood or religious life (click here).
