Is God Calling You To
The Priesthood Or Religious Life?

Vocation_Crucifix.jpgBefore I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you…” (Jeremiah 1:5, NAB).

“He said to them, ‘Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men’” (Matthew 4:19, NAB).

For some years, the Cathedral Parish has been a place where Christ's call to follow Him has been heard and accepted.

The Diocese of Madison begins the 2018-2019 academic year with over 25 men in seminary studies pursuing a vocation to the priesthood. We are very pleased to say that a number of these seminarians claim the Cathedral Parish as his home parish.  One young woman from our parish is now a Sister with the Congregation of St. Cecilia (the Nashville Dominicans).

Anyone wanting to talk about a vocation to the priesthood or Religious Life is most welcome to speak with Msgr. Holmes.
