The office of Priestly Vocations offers programs and events throughout the year aimed to promote priestly vocations within the Archdiocese of Detroit. These programs strive to increase awareness and help men gain a better understanding of the priesthood, seminary life and discernment. We encourage anyone interested in learning more to attend one of our many programs. Please click on the links below for more information on each program and to register.
