Catholic Ministries Appeal
Vocations: Fr. Wegiel
Your gifts to the Catholic Ministries Appeal help to build a community of Faith by supporting the education of our seminarians as they prepare to become priests in our diocese.
Fr. Wegiel was inspired to consider the vocation of the priesthood by his devout parents and his parish priest. Met with challenges to defend his faith as a college student at Stony Brook, he became active in Campus Ministry, which gave him the opportunity to build on his foundation of faith, grow in his prayer through Lectio Divina, attend retreats and participate in service projects.
His participation in this ministry inspired him to learn more about his faith and to form a deeper life of prayer. “Prayer is an invitation to the relationship with God,” Fr. Wegiel shared. Ordained in 2021, Father Wegiel’s desire is to follow God’s will and share the joy of the Gospel of Christ with others through his priestly ministry.
