Vocations Corner

"From now on you will be a fisher of human beings." To fish for people is to save them from the place of evil and to participate in the liberating action of Jesus. Only through friendship with God can we live with and for others.  If you wish to serve others as a priest or religious, call Fr. Michael Casey, Director of Vocations, Archdiocesan Pastoral Center, Tel. 860-761-7457, email or visit the web site at
