FROM OUR BISHOP

Dear Friends in Christ

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our Brooklyn Priests website. As you visit this site, think of our Lord, who continues to remind us, “The Harvest is Rich and Laborers are few. Pray the Lord of the Harvest to send more Laborers into His Harvest.”

 

St. Pope John Paul II, in preparation for the celebration for the year 2000, invited the whole Church to participate in the “New Evangelization.” Part of the New Evangelization is finding new means and using media to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. Part of that proclamation is inviting young people to be open to the Lord’s call to the vocations of priesthood and religious life.

This website is one way we invite young men to consider the Lord’s call to priesthood in our diocese in Brooklyn and Queens. I wish to say a particular word to each young man who may be considering “the call.” It has been my experience that, in many ways, the ones who can best encourage a young man to consider a vocation to priesthood are those young men who have taken that important step of discerning and responding to the call by entering the seminary.

 

We are so blessed in our diocese with generous, healthy and faithful young men who are studying for the priesthood as seminarians.
