​The Office of Vocations for the Archdiocese of Toronto is here to assist Catholics who are living their primary vocation (as disciples of Jesus Christ) helping to find within that their own particular and unique vocation if that is priesthood, religious life or the Permanent Diaconate.  For those who feel a call to serve the Church in these way – you’ve come to the right place!

Our goal is to help you on your unique journey to respond to God’s calling.  We support men considering or discerning (trying to prayerfully figure out) a possible call from the Lord to the diocesan priesthood with the discernment programs we offer.  We can offer referrals based on conversation with the Director of Vocations or a Vocation Council priest for wo​men and men considering religious life.  We also try to provide the best on-line resources we can find​. The Office of Vocations offers a friendly atmosphere and we host events that allow discerners an opportunity to meet others as well.

Jesus invited you here.  As a disciple, He said “Come, Follow Me...”.  Let us help you from here.
