In this Vocation initiative, you are asked to submit the name of someone whom you believe would be a good candidate to consider the Priesthood. Forms for this purpose may be found in the pews and at the Church entrances. Considerations and instructions are on the cards. Completed cards may be placed in the collection at Mass or in the votive candle offering boxes in the Church, or may be forwarded to the Rectory.
