Affiliates Events

Young men who are more actively discerning a vocation to the priesthood may become a part of the Archdiocesan "Affiliates" program.  As a member of the Affiliates, a man agrees to enter into a more intense time of discernment by meeting with a spiritual director monthly, by striving to live a prayerful and upstanding life, and by attending Affiliates events which occur roughly once a month.

If you are interested in being considered for the Affiliates program, please contact the Vocation Director, Fr. Mark Ivany.
