If you are interested in learning more about the Catholic priesthood or the vocations process, please contact Fr. Tom or Fr. Paul Arinze, the vocations director for the Diocese of Madison @ 821-3088 or

While the call to priesthood is vital to the Church, so is the call to religious life! Any women or men interested in joining or learning more about a religious order may contact Fr. Paul using the information above as well, or speak with Sister John Rose.
