Here’s the website by the way:

If you’re not in Memphis, then look up vocations in the website for your diocese.


First, you meet a Spiritual Director as the above poster has recommended. Then, you discern, then you go to Seminary. If you choose a fraternity such as the FSSP to be ordained, then you will be ordained into the 7 minor orders first. Though it may vary, usually in a diocesan Seminary, after discerning and learning, you’ll be ordained to the diaconate, and then finally, the Priesthood.
