Some Catholic men may answer the call and receive a special Sacrament called Holy Orders to become a deacon, priest, and bishop. These men serve the spiritual needs of others in the Catholic Church. If you are discerning the priesthood or religious life or if you are female and have a calling to dedicate your life to serving the world in God’s name, please visit the Diocesan website or contact Fr. Tony.
Are you feeling a call to the priesthood?
This fall, the diocese will open a house of discernment. The house will provide a place for young men to discern God's call in their lives. Fr. Tyler Tenbarge will serve as Chaplain and Director of the House and will coordinate opportunities for prayer and formation for the residents. In addition, other events coordinated by the Diocesan Vocation Office will be hosted at the house. Open to men ages 19-30. If you are interested in applying, please contact the Diocesan Vocation Director, Fr. Alex Zenthoefer, at (812) 476-3061 or at email@example.com.
