Vocations

Ordination

Through the sacrament of Baptism, each person receives "a call", or vocation. All are called to holiness and to serve. This call can be lived out in a variety of ways: as a married or single person, or as a priest, brother, or sister.

The following sections provide some direction for the heart and mind ready to ask and answer the question, "Who does God want me to be?"

Upcoming Vocation Events: 2016
Check out the FargoVocations events on Facebook.

Serra Picnic to Support of Vocations

Tuesday, July 26, there will be a potluck picnic to meet the seminarians and others who support vocations in the Diocese of Fargo.  The Serra Club has a monthly dinner with a vocation story by one of our local clergy or religious. Beginning September, the dinners will be at Sts. Anne & Joachim on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. There is a meal (free will offering), a short vocation story, and ideas to encourage vocations in your parish or family.

    Operation Andrew Dinners

    Bishop Folda will host a dinner/cookout this summer for men open to the priesthood.   We have a few of these dinners during the school year in each region of the diocese. The dinners serve as an invitation by Bishop John Folda to young men to be open to God's call to the priesthood.  If you are interested in attending, please contact your pastor.  For online registration, click here.

      DiocesanPriest.com serves ordinary men who are responding to their call to holiness and offers guidance for the question:  Is Jesus calling me to be a Catholic Priest?  To see videos that can offer encouragement and direction, click here


    I Will Follow

    I Will Follow, is a short film we have created to encourage men to consider a vocation to the priesthood. It is an excerpt from Altaration: The Mystery of the Mass Revealed, which presents the Mass and the priesthood to Catholic teens.
