I’ve been confused as to how to discern my vocation for the past few months. I am currently going into my senior year of high school and obviously deep into college searching. I am still undecided as to what I want to do as a career but the priesthood has always called me, and many people I know have recommended I follow that path. I also feel a calling from God but I’m just not sure how He wants me to go about it. I don’t know if I should enter a seminary or go to college first. I was thinking of pursuing a major in Theology or Catholic Studies as well as another major that interests me. I have been looking at many Catholic universities like BC, Holy Cross, Assumption, and Providence.
I’d really just like advice on the whole thing. Should I go to college first and pursue a theological program of studies which highly interests me or should I go directly to the seminary? Does anyone else have experience with this? Would I then be able to enter a seminary afterwards? Also, does anyone know of any very strong theology/catholic studies programs in the New England area?
Thank you very much for all your help and God Bless.
