Diocesan and religious priests tell the story of how they first heard the call to the priesthood.

Fr Troy Przybilla, the Vocation Director for the Archdiocese of St Paul and Minneapolis.

June 15, 2011. “No one has the right to be a priest, but it is a privilege to be called and to be given the gift to be a priest,” says Fr Randal Kasel, a parochial administrator in the archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. It was to tell the story of how this gift takes shape in the lives of individual men that launched a new series of video testimonies featuring 9 diocesan and religious priests from across the United States and Canada.

One was raised an atheist. Another had to overcome his parents’ objections to his vocation, while another struggled with his own fears. Another was deeply influenced by a conversation with another holy priest. Yet another discovered his true calling after he had already become a pilot. Three others, from the Hopkins family, joined the same religious order, while their sister joined a convent.

Their stories, told firsthand with humor, drama, and honesty, are online at as LifeStories: Vocations on Video.
