Welcome to our Vocations website
My name is Fr Michael Doody, and I am the Vocations Director for the Diocese of Leeds. I’m here to help you find out what God might be asking of you, particularly if you think he might be calling you to serve him as a Priest. Maybe that is you. Maybe though, the idea of being a Priest has just popped into your head and you want to know more or feel in need of some guidance. Either way, I’m here to help!
Our first vocation or call (that every human being has) is to be holy. Holiness will always involve a deep and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Stay close to Him by being faithful to prayer, receiving the Sacrament of Confession regularly and growing in your love for Him in the Mass and in the Most Holy Eucharist. Be generous to others with your time and by giving of yourself. The closer we stay to God the more we can hear what He is asking of us.
