I believe I’m being called to a vocation to the Diocesan Priesthood. I’ve been meeting with a spiritual director and mentioned feeling a pull to this vocation. She told me to talk to my priest or the Diocese vocations director and gave me a copy of To Save A Thousand Souls. I’ve been reading the book and it also suggest talking to a priest as soon as you think you may be called to a vocation and the importance of not discrening on your own. My concern is I’m a convert and haven’t been Catholic for long. I guess I’m nervous that my priest will shut me down or get mad for bringing up vocations this soon. I know he won’t really get mad but the thought keeps churning around in my mind.
So some background on my situation. I was brought into the Church last July. Prior to that I had attended mass for a little over a year (during and before RCIA). I was baptised in my parents Nazarene Church two years before I started going to mass. I’ve felt called to ministry of some form since early childhood but it came and went through the years.
