Priests (Clergy access only)
Ministry of Clergy Personnel keeps priests informed (by general mailings) of events in the diocese specifically for its clergy, assists in the continuing education of clergy, the annual convocation of priests and in working with priests who request sabbaticals.
The Office of the Diaconate reports to the Bishop and is responsible for the training and formation of men to the Permanent Diaconate and continues to assist all deacons following ordination.
We are approximately 436 canonical religious, 8 non-canonical members, 3 consecrated virgins and 1 secular institute member that minister in the four counties of the Diocese of Trenton. We represent membership in 49 male/female religious congregations who have dedicated our lives to announce and proclaim the word of the Lord.
God calls each person to a life of holiness and service, whether single, married, ordained or consecrated. The Diocesan Ministry of Vocations provides discernment opportunities, encouragement, support, education and resources for those responding to God’s call through the ministerial priesthood.
We are committed to fostering an environment where vocations to the priesthood are valued and nurtured within the domestic church of the family and the local parish community.
