The Office of Vocations and Seminarians aids in the discernment process of those who are interested in a vocation to the priesthood. If you would like to talk with someone about becoming a priest, contact Msgr. Scott Friend. Currently, the diocese has 22 seminarians, who not only come from Arkansas, but from Mexico and Vietnam as well. Most of these seminarians have been living in Arkansas for many years, but some are here in the United States for the first time.
