A call to the priesthood, like any vocation, is a unique call from God that must be fostered through prayer, with the guidance of the Church. The pages below provide some information and guidance concerning the priesthood. If you think that God is calling you, do not be afraid. Seek out your pastor and the diocesan vocation director. Continue to pray and stay close to the Sacraments. Here are just some of the many resources available to assist in the discernment of your vocation.
If you are seriously considering the call to priesthood, the first thing you need to do is talk to your pastor and vocation director. Application to the diocese is the first step, especially since your bishop will determine where you will be sent to study. Immaculate Heart of Mary Seminary hosts an information weekend each semester where young men who are discerning the call can come and visit the seminary, meet the seminarians, and learn more about what it is to be a seminarian.
