Vocational Ministries

San Antonio Seminarian Fund

The purpose of the San Antonio Seminarian Fund is to provide for the formation and living expenses of San Antonio’s seminarians as provided in the Seminarian policies. (Education, Room and Board, Formational Support, Community Development, General Care of San Antonio Seminarians)

Diaconate Office

The vision of the Diaconate Office is to help with a process of discernment to determine whether the Lord is calling them to serve in the Church Community of the Archdiocese under the guidance of the pastor of a particular parish. There are, at times, special ministries one might be called to outside of parish ministry. The Diaconate program forms men called to this vocation academically, spiritually and emotionally.

Priest Pension

The Priest Pension Plan is integral to ensuring that our priests who have reached the age of retirement may lead lives of simple dignity and honor by being able to afford to pay essential costs for their housing, utilities, meals and rising health expenses in the final years of their lives.

Office of Vocations

The Vocation Office of the Archdiocese of San Antonio values all vocations, and is commissioned to provide resources and discernment opportunities that promote and cultivate vocations to ordained and consecrated life, especially diocesan vocations.
