The Vocations Office of the Diocese of Rockville Centre helps men discern whether they have a call to be a priest. From the very first signs of interest, they guide men in their unique journey to hear the call of God by providing the support and resources they need to discern God’s plan for their lives. This includes informational programs, events, retreats, visits to the seminary, and spiritual direction.
As the discernment process progresses, we work with men to determine their eligibility to apply to our seminary for the diocesan priesthood. We also work to create a diocesan-wide culture that supports vocations, through promotion, education, and parish-based efforts to raise awareness of the priesthood.
“My goal as a priest is to be an instrument for the salvation of souls. I would like to reach out and inspire our young people and bring hope to the older generations. Just as the Catholic Ministries Appeal touches people in every aspect of their lives – there is no aspect of our own lives that we can’t use to bring Catholics home to Christ and the Church.”
– Father Christopher Sullivan, Associate Pastor Our Lady of Victory, Floral Park
