The Office of Vocations recruits and assesses candidates for priesthood in this archdiocese and acts as a resource for people discerning their vocations to priesthood or consecrated life, as well as for families and parishes supporting the culture of religious vocations. Its website, www.10000vocations.org, provides information on discernment, vocation events, testimonies of seminarians and other people from this archdiocese in formation, and links to many vocation-related sites.
