Holy Orders

All baptized Catholics share in the Royal Priesthood of Jesus by virtue of their Baptism. However, some feel called to serve God through ordination to the diaconate, the priesthood or participation in religious life. The call to Holy Orders or Religious Life is a call to serve the church in a specific way, but a way that is equally special with any vocation that God may be calling you to. The following links will direct you to the various vocations offices of the Archdiocese.

Vocations to Religious Life include men and women who feel called to live in Religious life as sisters, brothers, or priests taking vows in Religious Communities. If you would like more information please visit

If you are interested in learning more about the diaconate program, please contact Father Hernan through the rectory. You are also invited to visit the archdiocesan website at  Please note that anyone interested in the diaconate needs support from the pastor of their parish.

Fr. Hernan would be happy to meet with anyone interested in the priesthood, but also encourage you to visit the Vocations Office of the Archdiocese of Chicago at
