15 Columbus Diocese seminarians, priests, and deacons will ride their bikes 30-50 miles a day through the Diocese starting at St. Andrew School in Upper Arlington, Ohio on May 12 and finish at the Notre Dame Schools in Portsmouth, Ohio on May 16. They will be reaching out to spread the message of living the life you’re called to live. The seminarians look forward to this annual event of fellowship, evangelization, the challenge of cycling, and the opportunity to spend time talking about vocations with youth, pastors and parishioners in the diocese.

Welcome to SeekHoliness, the Vocations website of the Diocese of Columbus. This site is here to assist you answer Gods universal call to holiness; and in a particular way support men who are discerning the diocesan priesthood, and men and women who are considering life with a religious community. It is good that you have come here. Every Catholic must spend time discerning the particular vocation that the Lord has created them to fulfill.
“The discernment of a vocation is above all the fruit of an intimate dialogue between the Lord and his disciples. Young people, if they know how to pray, can be trusted to know what to do with God’s call.” (Pope Benedict XVI)
