It is my pleasure to welcome you to our Rockford Priests website. As you visit this site, think of our Lord, who continues to remind us, “The Harvest is Rich and Laborers are few. Pray the Lord of the Harvest to send more Laborers into His Harvest.”

Nolite Timere (Do Not be Afraid) and Duc in Altum (Cast out into the Deep) From now on you will be catching people.
Be Not Afraid! This is one of the most common things we hear from Jesus in Sacred Scripture and should be a constant reminder. Fr. Manno and the assistant vocation directors of the diocese will walk with each man and his family in discernment to discover his true vocation. We invite you to contact us or view the map below to see if a vocation director is near you.
