While the primary mission of the Vocation Office is to help discern and form vocations to the diocisan priesthood, we also are happy to assist those who may be called to the religious life within the Archdiocese of Oaklahoma City.
You may feel a particular call to way of life different from the diocesan priesthood.
Religious orders and consecrated life center around the Evengelical Councils of Poverty, Chastity, and Obediance — and may include aditional vows given for particular orders around the world.
Take the time to learn more about the consecrated life, and explore the communities serving here in our diocese.
