Ever thought about becoming a priest?

Do you know someone over 30 who might have a vocation?

Some men mistakenly assume priesthood is not an option because they had been married, had children, lacked a college degree, or thought they were “too old” or “not good enough.” Deacon Steve Kramer is going to host Zoom “Meet & Greets” for men over 30 who might be wondering if God is calling them. These Zoom sessions are informal, no presentation, just bring your own coffee and questions.

 

Sacred Heart has been helping to guide second career vocations since 1970. We invite you to register for one of the upcoming sessions, or to encourage someone you think might have a calling to sign-up.  There is nothing to lose, but a lot to gain! Click here to register now.
