Welcome to the Vocation Section
of the New Orleans Province Web Site
and Thanks for Visiting Us!

The photo above was taken a few weeks after the five new men arrived in Grand Coteau to join the second-year novices. These men have just been officially invited into the Novitiate and given their black clerical shirts and collars. You can check out the "before" and "after" look!

We hope that you will enjoy meeting, in a virtual sort of way, some of our novices past and present. From this visit we also hope that you will learn about our Jesuit vocation, our life, our work as well as about upcoming vocation events.

Meet the Second-Year men
who entered the Novitiate in 2006.


Meet the new First-Year men
