various forms, through married and family life,
as a single devoted to the service of God and

If you are here, chances are that you have a

Through these brief pages, we will help you to
find some answer, and also more questions which
will feed your curiosity and interest in the
priesthood, and perhaps help you inch even
closer to deciding on a new and exciting life: a
life in the ranks of God’s faithful priesthood.
