St. Anastasia Parish

Sacraments » Vocations


​The Sacrament of Holy Orders is one of two vocational Sacraments (Holy Matrimony is the other).  Vocation comes from a Latin word vocare, which means “to call.”  God calls men of every age, race, and tongue to serve the people of God as priests. 
If you know a young man or woman in your family, in your neighborhood, or in our parish that you think would make a great priest or religious sister, TELL THEM! 
If you believe that God is calling you to serve him as a religious brother or sister, nun, or priest, talk to one of the priests here at St. Anastasia!  You can also contact the Vocations Office of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
