Do you feel that you might be called to priesthood or know someone who is?
If so, you might want to inquire about two discernment programs. The
first is the St. Joseph Club, which is a program for high school boys
who wish to take a closer look at the vocation of priesthood and
consider the possibility that God is calling them to it. The second is
the Response Program, which is for gentlemen of college age and older
who believe that God is calling them to priesthood and wish to listen to
God's voice more closely while benefitting from discernment resources
and the support of fellow discerners. Both of these programs are free of
cost. Brochures containing schedules and other details will be sent to
parishes soon. Information can also be attained by visiting http://www.buffalovocations.org or calling 716-847-5535.
