Greetings from Bishop Patrick J. McGrath

Bishop McGrath

To be called to the Priesthood in this day and age is both a gift and a challenge. It requires a generous heart, an open mind, and a very courageous spirit.

A priestly vocation is not a gift that is given merely to enrich and better one’s own self, but rather a gift that is given with the responsibility and the expectation that the gift will be shared with others.

“Friendship with Jesus Christ should be the most profound and ultimate motive that gives one courage to become a priest.”  —Walter Kasper
