Welcome to the website for the Vocation Office of the Diocese of Buffalo.

When looking at one's future there are undoubtedly many paths that a person can choose. Sometimes individuals feel called to the priesthood, religious life, or service within the Church, yet you may not know how to get more information. This is the purpose of our website. Please read Fr. Andrew's message to you at the Director's Update page, which will give you more information and provide you with additional resources to help you discover God's plan.

My name is Father Andrew Lauricella, the Director of Vocations for the Diocese of Buffalo. I want to welcome you to explore and research our Vocation website. I hope that you will find it interesting and informative. More
