THE LIGUORI SOCIETY: An association of faithful young men of high school and college age for the purpose of prayer, work for and discernment of priestly vocations. Everyone is either called to a priestly vocation or knows someone who is. Young men are ideally situated for this apostolate and the Ligouri Society, named for the patron of priestly vocations, positions them to pursue this important work for Christ in a better way. Prospective members must be at least of high school age, currently attending Sunday Mass and otherwise seeking to live the precepts of the Church, and willing to pray for and encourage vocations to the priesthood while discerning their own call whatever it might be. Interested individuals must make their request to enter through current members who can be identified by their attire of suit and tie at Sunday Masses and cassock and surplice while serving Mass.
