Our Vocations Team is here as a resource for you as you listen to God’s calling for your life. We have walked this path ourselves.
The Melchizedek Project is a spiritual discernment group that helps high school and college-aged men consider a vocation to the Priesthood. It is based on the book “To Save A Thousand Souls” by Fr. Brett Brannen. All participants will enjoy a meal at each meeting and receive the book for free.
