Religious Vocations

Although, as Diocesan Vocations Director, I am responsible for vocations to the diocesan priesthood, I am very happy, within my limitations, to promote links advertising events or websites for religious orders.

If you have something you would like included here please send it to me here. One of my limitations is not having much time to update this blog so please be patient. It would be great if this page could offer  a resource with links to as many religious congregations as possible.
