Why guys become priests

If you feel drawn to this life of service, share your questions with others...

Why do guys become priests?

  • to lead from the heart of the community
  • to follow in Christ’s footsteps
  • to bring hope to those who are disillusioned
  • to give courage to those who are afraid
  • to share our strength and weakness
  • to celebrate the gift of eternal life

Priesthood makes a real difference in our world today by reaching out and touching all our lives.
