Bishop Edward J. Slattery established today "Damien House," a place for Catholic men to live and discern more intentionally their vocation to the priesthood. If you are 18 or older, going to college in Tulsa or working in the area and feel that you need a place to live and grow in virtue while discerning your vocation to the priesthood, this is the place for you!
Damien House will be located on the premises of the Church of the Madalene. The Office of Vocations will coordinate the mission of the house under the direct supervision of Fr. Brian O'Brien. Operations start on August 1, 2016.
If you or somebody you know is interested in learning more about Damien House, do not be shy and contact the Office of Vocations. The Lord spoke to Joshua and now he might be speaking to you with the same words, "I hereby command you: Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9).
