Men of the Hearts

The priesthood is the love of the heart of Jesus

About the show

Join Fr. Craig Giera and Fr. David Pellican as they explore the richness of priestly vocations and share how each of us can support this mission.

The Office for Priestly Vocations is the chief promoter of vocational awareness for the priesthood in the Archdiocese of Detroit. We are Men of the Hearts because both the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus beat as one to animate the call in young men.
