“Becoming a priest or a man or woman religious is not primarily our own decision… rather it is the response to a call and to a call of love.”

Pope Francis

The call to priesthood or consecrated life is a beautiful one. It is an intimate and intensive way that God involves us in His projection of salvation. Discernment can be a long and difficult process, which is why Our Lady of Fatima Parish and the Diocese of St. Petersburg offer programs and resources to support individuals discerning priesthood and religious life.

If you or someone you know feels they have a vocation to the priesthood or consecrated life, please contact our parish priest.
