Holy Orders

God continues to be present to our church through the gift of the sacraments; God asks that these sacraments be celebrated in the church by priests who are willing to give their lives in the joyful service of God's people. Men of all ages continue to be called by God to share their life in service to the church as priests. Other men sense a call to service as permanent deacons. Is there a quiet voice or feeling inside drawing you toward the priesthood or diaconate? If you sense this call from God to service in the Church, please contact Fr. Dauses at 410-974-4366.

Are you a parent or grandparent who sees someone in your family who you think would make a good priest, deacon or religious? Tell them! Most people who discern a religious vocation in our church feel little or no support from their families in discerning this call.

More infiormation about the vocation to the priesthood is available through the Archdiocese of Baltimore Vocation Office's new web site: www.becomeapriest.org. Discover numerous resources associated with the priesthood and discernment, check out seminarian blogs, and view video from seminarians. You are one click away from discovering your "call". Please feel free to contact the Director of Vocations, Rev. Michael DeAscanis at 410-547-5426.
