A Calling from God

Welcome to the Diocese of Rockford’s Vocations page. I’m Fr. Kyle Manno the vocation director for the Diocese and I thank God that you are discerning what God desires for your life. Please know that the Diocese is praying for the Lord to send harvesters to the field in order to save souls.


Look around the website and please do not hesitate to contact me via email or phone to chat about the possibility to a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. My job as vocation director is to help you discover God’s will and allow you to see the greatness that God desires for your life. The Lord is calling great men and women to lay down their lives for God’s people…. will you answer?


God bless,

Fr. Manno

What’s the first step?

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. Kyle Manno and the assistant vocation directors of the diocese will walk with each young person and their family in discernment to discover their true vocation. We invite you to contact us or view the map below to see if a vocation director is near you.
