Becoming a priest?

How does one become a priest? We hear all about the need for more priests, but most people, (myself included) don’t know all of what is involved. Can anyone help with this?

Look at your diocesan website and call up the vocations department. They will put you in touch with a Vocations Director and they will want you to get a Spiritual Director. To get a SD talk to your parish priest about it and see if he can help you.

God bless on your quest
