Better together.

Catholics from all over the Archdiocese of Santa Fe are coming together to shape the future of the Catholic Church. The Catholic Club for Religious Vocations exists to empower you to nurture tomorrow’s priests and to cultivate a culture of vocations.

Cultivating a sustainable future for the Church.

We began with a vision to elevate the education and development of our seminarians, and with your support, we strive to ensure that our communities are always guided by compassionate and fatherly priests.
