Vocation Stories and Reflections on Priesthood

Hear it in their own words…

“The Diocesan Priesthood is an incredible way to live our Christian life. In the midst of people’s lives we gather the community together to celebrate Christ’s presence. From baptisms to requiems, from heart attack to celebration, there with people, the priest gives and receives love, and grows ever closer to the Lord. “
Fr Patrick Bridgman

“To be an instrument of God’s love in this way is a gift and privilege beyond words. When I stand at the altar and see the faith of the people of God, gathered to be nourished by the word of God and the Eucharist, I am humbled to be called to priesthood.”
Fr David Dowling


“All of us are on the journey towards God. Sometimes we lose the way and we do not know where we are supposed to go. But if we just stop what we are doing and listen carefully with our heart, we can hear Jesus whisper to us deep in our heart. And this whisper will lead us in the right direction. We just need to trust him and remember his words,’Come follow me’.”   Fr Andrew Kim
