Priesthood as a Vocation

Called by Name

What does it take to become a priest? You might be surprised. The Vocations Office of the Archdiocese of Edmonton is pleased to present “Called By Name,” a new video series that tells the stories of six men who took very different paths to priesthood.

To view all the videos in the Called By Name series, visit our YEG Vocations Playlist on Youtube or the Called By Name Album on Vimeo. Come and See!


Come and See Weekend at St. Joseph Seminary

Twice a year, St. Joseph Seminary offers a weekend live-in experience for men who are discerning a call to the priesthood. We call them “Come and See Weekends.”

If you’ve been talking and talking about the priesthood, now’s the time for action: come and see for yourself, ask your questions, express your concerns, meet other seminarians and pray for God’s will.

There is no cost to you, and no obligations. These weekends are great opportunities for your discernment journey. You will meet the team of amazing priests who train and form future priests, our current seminarians who are in ongoing formation and discernment, and other men like yourself who are discerning the Lord’s will for their lives.

So, Come & See us at St. Joseph Seminary, a beautiful place where Our Lord Jesus Christ continues to build up his Church and provide priests for tomorrow!

October 26-28, 2018 or March 8-10, 2019 

Registration forms will be provided to Vocation Directors in October, and can be obtained from your Vocation Director or contact St. Joseph Seminary.
