The Office of Vocations for the Archdiocese of Hartford is committed to fostering quality, faithful, and lasting vocations to the diocesan priesthood. We also seek to support all the vocations in the Church--those called to consecrated life, marriage and family life, the permanent diaconate, and committed single life for the Kingdom.
From the Director
"The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few” (Mt 9:37). We need good priests to serve the Archdiocese of Hartford--might you be called? We would be delighted to accompany you on your discernment journey to discover God's plan for your life!
Q. Why does the Church need priests?
A. The Eucharist is the source and summit of the life of the Church. Without the Eucharist, there is no Church. We need priests to continue the work of the Apostles to teach, govern, and sanctify and by their word, deeds, and example invite all the world to experience the joy of the Gospel.
