The Sacrament of Holy Orders is one of two vocational Sacraments (Holy Matrimony is the other). Vocation comes from a latin word vocare, which means “to call.” God calls men of every age, race, and tongue to serve the people of God as priests. If you know a young man in your family, on your block, or in our parish that you think would make a great priest, TELL HIM!
If you are a young man who thinks God is calling you to be a priest, please don’t hesitate to talk to any priest here at St. Edward. You can also contact the vocations office of the Archdiocese of Chicago at their website: www.ChicagoPriest.com
