Holy Orders/Religious Life

Do you feel God calling you to serve as a priest, deacon, or to religious life?

In our baptism, we are called to use the gifts we have been given to serve others and to proclaim the gospel to all people. Some people have a particular call to serve God by becoming a priest, deacon or religious. Priests and deacons are ordained in the Sacrament of Holy Orders while religious take vows. Serving in this way is truly a calling from God.

Do you feel God calling you to serve as a priest, deacon, or to religious life?

If you think God might be calling you to the priesthood or diaconate we encourage you to:

– Talk with our pastor, Father Chumo at 607-273-6121 or email him at fr.augustine.chumo@dor.org
