I’m a junior in high school, I was born catholic but more recently began to embrace the faith. I have been praying the rosary every day for an hour and have been asking God where he wants me to go in life. About a week ago while praying and asking God of this, I felt a strong calling to the religious life, to be a sister. In my head I immediately responded yes, but I am still trying to discern this calling further.
I want to contact the priest of my parish as a spiritual advisor, but I'm kind of scared to approach him after mass or to call and make an appointment with him. On our parish website it gives his email and I was wondering if I could set up an appointment through his email or if I could even just bring up my calling through the email. Any advice from someone who has spoken to their priest about a calling to the religious life?
