CRUX – the decisive or most important point at issue

What experiences in your life can only be explained by the existence, the presence, and the intervention of God?

How does God becoming human in the person of Jesus change our understanding of being human, our understanding of God?

How can living in the present moment fill me with greater joy, peace, conviction and love?

ANIMA is a series of films that help us break through the noise of our everyday life in order to hear the voice of truth and love. Each film in the series guides us on an inward journey of self-reflection and wonder. The short movies feature Bishop Donald Hying as he incorporates the word of God, original music, and the highest level of cinematography.

Answer the Call – Saint Francis Seminary


Do You Feel Called To The Priesthood?

Do You Feel Called To The Priesthood?


Saint Francis de Sales Seminary’s main building was built in 1855.  Its golden cross atop the cupola quickly became a point of navigation for sailors on Lake Michigan trying to reach the safety of Milwaukee’s harbor.  Today, the cross remains a point of spiritual navigation for men seeking the way to serve the Lord as his priests.

As he called the first apostles, Jesus Christ still calls men to lay down their lives in service to His Church as priests in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Young men are stepping forward every day to think about the priesthood and answer that call.

Have you ever thought about being a priest?
