Welcome to the Diocese of Portland’s Vocations webpages!

I pray that that the information you find here may be helpful to you as you discern what God is calling you to do.  When a man is discerning a call to the priesthood there are many questions and uncertainties.  Your parish priest and the Vocations Office are here to support you and journey with you as the Church discerns with you.  Do not hesitate to reach out to your pastor and the Vocations Office in order for us to assist you in the discernment process. 

To assist in the discernment process, the Vocations Office hosts multiple discernment events each year.  Information on how to register for these events can be found here on our webpage.

If you are discerning a call to the priesthood or think that God maybe calling you to be a priest to serve in the Diocese of Portland, I look forward to meeting with you to discuss what God might be calling you to do!  You can contact me at [email protected] or by calling the Chancery at 207-773-6471.

Please know of my prayers for you as your discern God’s call and will in your life.

Fr. Gregory Dube
Director of Vocations and Seminarians
