Vocations to the Priesthood


Jesus is the Word who calls you to serve Him in truth. Is He inviting you to priesthood or religious life?

If you want help identifying signs of a vocation to the priesthood:

  • talk to your pastor
  • contact the Vocation Office (718-827-2454), or
  • visit BrooklynPriests.org.

            "For the priestly office is indeed discharged on earth, but it ranks amongst heavenly ordinances; and very naturally so: for neither man, nor angel, nor archangel, nor any other created power, but the Paraclete Himself, instituted this vocation, and persuaded men while still abiding in the flesh to represent the ministry of angels.”

            ~ St. John Chrysostom
