Celebrating the Year For Priests: New Vocation Video From the Archdiocese of New York

Here is the latest priesthood vocation video from my archdiocese. As consecrated virgins are called to serve and pray for the needs of their local Church, encouraging vocations—and spiritually supporting those who are called—is a cause very near to my heart.

Now if after viewing this video, any of my young, single, practicing Catholic, male readers are interested in becoming a New York priest, you can find our Vocation Director’s contact information here, on NYPriest.com. ;-)

(Sorry, I just had to sneak that in!)

Advertising is all fine - when it's service to God we're advertising!

Definitely! :)

But actually, the “NYPriest.com” campaign isn’t totally about advertising, or “recruiting” more vocations. It’s also an attempt to change the way our contemporary culture thinks about priesthood. (We once even had a trailer run in a secular movie theater!)

We want the average man or woman on the street to see how awesome it is to give your life over to God!

Thanks so much for posting this video - It's very good! I will spread it around....

The vocations are there - we need more of God's instruments like YOU to help others discern the call.

God bless you for all your good work!
