Answering God’s Call

If someone thinks he is being called to the priesthood or diaconate, please contact the pastor or a priest of your choice. He will put you in contact with someone to help you discern your call.

If someone thinks she is being called to vowed religious life as a sister, please contact anyone of our parish staff or contact one of the several congregations in Dubuque, including the Sisters of St. Francis, Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, or the Trappestines of Our Lady of the Mississippi Abbey.

Men discerning a call to permanent diaconate may contact Deacon Bill Biver:
