In the immortal words of a famous sneaker manufacturer: “Just do it!” If you feel that God is inviting you to “try it out,” apply to our diocese or to a religious order. This is simply a first step, a step in discernment. You will not be ordained or asked to profess vows for many years, providing ample opportunity to explore the possibility of a call to priesthood or religious life.
If you have an interest in finding out more about the path to priesthood or the permanent diaconate in our diocese, you are very welcome to contact our Diocesan Vocations Director: Fr. Ruairi O’Domhnaill. Naas, Co. Kildare. Tel: 083 3343744 Email: :[email protected].
