Find a Religious Vocation Director
A religious priest or brother commits himself to Christ and the Christian community by the Evangelical Counsels, or vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. This consecrated life is expressed in various forms: Eremitic Life, Religious Life, Secular Institutes, and Societies of Apostolic Life. Each form is described by the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and we have provided a link, where possible, that will help you learn more about the various forms of Consecrated Life and be in contact with those that interest you.
