Thank you for visiting the website of the Office of Priestly Vocations of the Archdiocese of Denver. As you look over the material on this site I hope you get a vision for the priesthood in the Archdiocese of Denver and I hope all your questions are answered. There are a number of discernment events scheduled each semester. We would love to have you come join us for one or more of them.
God’s call to discern a vocation to the priesthood can be an experience that is exhilarating and humbling, while at the same time perhaps frightening and confusing. All these reactions are normal. The call to live a priestly vocation is a call to live a supernatural vocation. God understands that in order for any human to live a supernatural vocation he must be given particular graces. And so those graces are given in abundance to those he calls. If God is calling you to the priesthood, be generous and respond with everything. God is never outdone in generosity. And most of all rely on the graces he gives.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
Fr. Jim Crisman
