Vocations

mission statement

The Vocations Office of the Diocese of Orange promotes all Church vocations, particularly the diocesan priesthood. The Vocations Office invites and challenges men to reflect on their baptism, pray about and consider the possibility of God’s call to service and ministry, and discern the personal responses to that call.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The Vocations Office encourages, supports, and assists those discerning a call to service in the Church. The Vocations Office also assists those currently in seminary formation for the priesthood in the areas of human, spiritual, intellectual, and pastoral development as they discern and prepare for the priesthood. The aim is to have happy, healthy, and holy priests who have a deep relationship with Jesus and desire to lead others to come and know him as well.
