Holy Orders

​Ordination to the priesthood is always a call and a gift from God. Christ reminded his Apostles that they needed to ask the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into the harvest.  Those who seek priesthood respond generously to God's call using the words of the prophet, "Here I am, send me" (Is 6:8).  This call from God can be recognized and understood from the daily signs that disclose his will to those in charge of discerning the vocation of the candidate.  ~ United States Catholic Catechism for Adults

The Office for Clergy Vocations of the Diocese of Greensburg is sponsoring a program for vocational discernment based upon Fr. Brett Brannen’s book, “To Save a Thousand Souls”. Father Daniel Mahoney is supporting this program that will be held in the Rectory at Holy Family Church, 1200 Ligonier Street, Latrobe, PA. This vocation discernment program is for single Catholic males 18 years of age or older.   Click here to see a flyer showing the evenings this group will meet.  If you have any specific questions about this program, please call the parish office at 724-845-8191.
