Diocese of Ogdensburg

The Roman Catholic Church in Northern New York

Have you ever considered religious life as a sister, a nun or a brother? How do you discern if religious life may be where God is calling you? As we enter into the celebration of the Year of Consecrated Life, we will use this page to share information about religious life, discernment, different type of consecrated life, and other vocational information.

If you have thought about religious life, one of the best places to start your discernment is to talk with those who are living consecrated life today. All communities have a vocation director who would love to talk to you about your vocation and share with you information about their community. Most communities have webpages where you can find basic information as well as connect with the vocation director of that community. For communities present in the Diocese of Ogdensburg click here. Another resource for religious life is the Vision Vocations Network.

Over the next few weeks we will update this webpage with information about vocations, opportunities for vocation retreats, and other resources.
