The Holy Spirit will always provide for us

A couple of months back I wondered if being a sede vacante (vacant seat) diocese would affect the number of men who seek to discern the priesthood. This is because from a theological point of view the bishop is the point of unity for a diocese and plays a central role in the work of vocations.

Growth in our city and diocese / strengthening our Catholic identity

For some years now the Diocese of Fort Worth has been undergoing transformation, reorganization, and renewal.
