 Called By Name Appeal

Submit A NameNewly Ordained 2015Another important component of the annual Seminarian and Clergy Formation Collection is the Called By Name Appeal. This appeal allows the faithful of the diocese to take an active role in the vocation recruitment process. Through this appeal, the faithful are given an opportunity to identify suitable candidates for ordained ministry and forward these names to the Office for Clergy Vocations. 

During the past 11 years, more than 600 names have been submitted, and more than 80 men have responded to the invitation from the Office for Clergy Vocations to receive information about ordained ministry.

The Called By Name Appeal has begun to raise awareness of the permanent diaconate program in the Diocese of Greensburg. During the past two years 15 men expressed interest in the permanent diaconate, and are moving toward aspirancy, one of the beginning steps in the diaconal formation process.

You are invited to help identify candidates who may be called by God to the vocations of priesthood or permanent diaconate. Thank you for your participation in this collection and appeal. With your generous support, may the spiritual needs of the faithful in the diocese be addressed today and into the future.
