Chicago Priest:

To discern a vocation as a Diocesan priest visit:


“God has a special plan for your life and wants you to have support in discovering that plan. Call me for information and guidance in the desire you feel toward priesthood. Practical help makes the practice of listening to God easier. It takes courage to make that first call, and you will appreciate that you did.”
