The Director of Vocations seeks to assist people in discerning and supporting their call to ministry within the Church especially in regard to priesthood or religious life.

The Director of Vocations oversees the seminary application process and continues to support and nurture seminarians during their formation. While the cost for seminary education is high, the Catholic Services Appeal and other generous donations provide support for future Diocese of Gaylord priests.

Prayer For Vocations

God, Our Father,
Thank you for your son, Jesus, our Good Shepherd, who leads us to fullness of life.
By our baptism, we are called by name to continue the mission of Jesus.
Give us the grace to listen with an open heart to the voice of Jesus and to respond generously with a joyful spirit.
Strengthen intentions of the men and women you call to serve through marriage, the single life, the diaconate, priesthood, and consecrated life.
Guide all who are discerning their Christian vocation.
In gratitude we offer this prayer through Jesus and the Holy Spirit, united with you forever. Amen.
