“The harvest is abundant, but the labors are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”

Luke 10:2

We are in a serious priesthood crisis. Without vocations, there are no ​priests, without priests, there is no Eucharist, and without the ​Eucharist, there is no Church.



Pope Benedict XVI stated, “Let us be quite frank: the ability to ​cultivate vocations to the priesthood and the religious life is a sure ​sign of the health of a local Church. There is no room for ​complacency in this regard. God continues to call young people: it is ​up to all of us to encourage a generous and free response to that call.”
