There are two types of priests: Diocesan and Religious.

Diocesan priests serve the Bishop of the Diocese they are located in.

Religious priests belong to religious orders such as the Augustinians, Franciscans, etc.


Priests are ordained clergy but are human beings like the rest of us.

They like music, sports, good food; they get tired and hungry, etc;

but the important thing about them is they have decided

to serve God and put Him first in their lives.
