Vocations to the Priesthood

By the anointing of the Holy Spirit, priests are configured to Christ in such a way that they are able to act in the person of Christ the head. Their ministry makes a special claim on them to serve God’s people, by proclaiming the Word of God and by celebrating the Sacraments.

Vocations to Religious Life

By the profession of the evangelical counsels; that is, chastity, poverty, and obedience, women and men in consecrated life exhibit the life of Christ in a radical way. They live in the midst of the world so as to turn the eyes of the world towards the mystery of the Kingdom of God already at work in history. In a real but mysterious way, they live out the Kingdom in the world, even as it awaits its full realization in heaven.

Those interested in religious life should contact Fr. Tim, and connect with the Diocese of Lansing Director of Consecrated Vocations.
