Priesthood

Although any information on this page about vocations is relevant and of interest to all who aspire to be a follower of Jesus Christ, it is mostly aimed at those in the parish who may be thinking about priesthood or who knows a friend or family member who needs encouragement to become a priest. 

For information, please look at the Archdiocese of Liverpool's website. Also check this site on a regular basis for any updates..

NB the following was posted in January 2018 so you will need to contact Fr Ron Johnson for further information.  Fr Ron Johnson was appointed as Vocations Director in July 2019.

To support those exploring Vocations to the Priesthood in our diocese, a monthly day of recollection has been organised for the first Saturday of each month. These days will help men who feel called to ordained ministry to discover more about diocesan priesthood and meet others discerning a call to priesthood. There will be an opportunity to talk with and hear from priests who minister in the diocese, and also a time for prayer and discussion.

The days of recollection usually take place at St. Charles’ Presbytery, 224 Aigburth Road, Liverpool.

For further information, please contact Fr Ron Johnson, Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Liverpool, telephone: 0151 727 2493. Regular updates will be posted on the Facebook page: Archdiocese of Liverpool Vocations.
