I’m currently in the process of discerning a vocation as either a priest or religious brother. I’ve been becoming more active in my parish and with my university’s CCM. I’ll be entering my Sophomore year this coming fall, but have considered the possibility of leaving for seminary. It’s a tough process and I’m really searching for God’s answer. I should also point out, I’m a recent Catholic convert (having been raised Baptist). I want to make sure my decision is in following what God wants, but I would really like any input that you all might have.
In terms of whether or not I’d become a diocesan or religious order priest is still under consideration too. I consider myself an intellectual and academic, however, I’m very emotionally and spiritually attracted to service as well as education and ministry.
Any advice or input would be welcome. Thank you, and God bless.
