Holy Orders

Vocations to the priesthood are very much in need. Men of heroic virtue can make a difference in the world, and God never ceases to call men to this life. If you are interested in learning more about a vocation to the priesthood, please contact the Diocese of Calgary Office of Vocations to arrange a time to meet with Fr. Cristino Bouvette.


Through the sacrament of Holy Orders priests share in the universal dimensions of the mission that Christ entrusted to the apostles. The spiritual gift they have received in ordination prepares them, not for a limited and restricted mission, ‘but for the fullest, in fact the universal mission of salvation ‘to the end of the earth,’ ‘prepared in spirit to preach the Gospel everywhere.’
