A Message About Vocations

Welcome to the webpages for the Vocations Office. The reason these pages exist is to provide you with an inside view to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ. The stories and insights of Priests, as well as their parents, are provided as resources to help guide your discernment of a call to the Priesthood.

St. John Marie Vianney said that the Priesthood is "the love of the heart of Jesus." Christ's love made visible in the heroic witness of our Priests in the Diocese of Allentown will inspire you who read this message to respond generously to God's call to the Priesthood.

Take a look through the Vocations section of this website.. Use the information to help your prayer and discernment. Ask the Blessed Mother to help you open your heart completely to God. Allow the Holy Spirit to move in you. If it seems that God may be calling you to be a Priest, do not be afraid. Contact our Office of Vocations. We are here to walk with you on the road of discernment.
