“Ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest” (Mt 9:38)”

Every baptized person is called to holiness. But sometimes God calls us to a certain life of service to Him as priests, deacons, religious sisters or brothers, monks, or nuns.

The Office for Vocations assists those who feel God’s call to be a priest or a deacon in their journey of discernment, application to the seminary or the diaconal formation program, and accompanies them through their years of preparation for the ordination.

“If you are feeling called to be a priest or a deacon for the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia, please, reach out to our Vocation Office!”

You can support vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, and religious life through your prayer.


You can also assist with the formation of our seminarians and candidates for the diaconate by your donation here or by check payable to the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia - memo Vocations

Prayer for vocation:

Almighty and Merciful God, inspire those You have chosen to hear and answer Your call to the Priesthood and Religious Life.
Give them the courage to be the prophets for our times.
Give them the wisdom and openness to live their personal call.
Give them the strength to be ready witnesses of Your love and care for the world.
May they find support and encouragement in our words and in our prayers, through the intercession of Mary, the Mother of God, and all the Saints. Amen.
