Discernment to the Seminary
The following steps can assist those discerning towards the seminary.
The call to priesthood and religious life is always from God. Developing a deliberately prayerful life — meaning one that includes daily prayer, Mass and regular confession, is essential to hearing the call to follow Jesus Christ.
Discuss With Your Parish Pastor or School Chaplain
The priest(s) at your parish will offer the first glimpse into priesthood and can answer some initial questions. Your conversations with him will help you discern your vocation direction.
Make an Appointment
The Vocations Office is available to meet and discuss the discernment and application process.
Attend a St. Andrew Breakfast or Dinner
These monthly events give you time to inquire about seminary life and issues of discernment.
After a period of discernment, a Vocations Liaison will provide the preliminary questionnaire, which will help in expressing the desire to follow the call of Jesus Christ.
