DENVER, CO, USA — Twenty years after World Youth Day 1993 in Denver, vocations to the priesthood in the Mile High City are on the rise. Strong evidence for the infusion of the Holy Spirit’s work in northern Colorado was on display at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception this past Saturday, as seven men laid down their life in service to Christ’s priesthood. Through God’s grace, and these men’s “YES” to Christ’s call, the Archdiocese of Denver received a huge boost of ‘ardor’ for the future work of the Church and the New Evangelization.

Listening to his story makes one aware very quickly that peace and happiness indeed is possible at the foot of Cross.
From his time as an altar boy, Charles felt the call that God was calling him to be a priest. Later, he felt a strong desire to be a priest, but he had not discovered yet his path for priesthood. Therefore, he went to the Internet to search on Google for: Religious Congregations. It just so happened that one of the results was Carmelites of Tanzania. After spending some time with the Carmelites in Tanzania, it was clear that Charles was on a clear path to a vocation in the priesthood thanks to their prayer life and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
