I have felt called to be a priest for some time now, probably being three years. Next year, I will be in 8th grade, and the year after that 9th. My question is with my strong desire to do God’s will, if I still feel called to the priesthood when I end my 8th grade year, should I enter a minor seminary. I am torn because I have this extreme desire to go to a minor seminary but, the pastor of my church says it would be the one thing he wishes he could change about his life and he doesn’t recommend it. I extremely feel called to serve Christ through the priesthood and would like to begin, if it be His will, studying now. Are there any traditionally minded minor seminaries for high-schoolers? If it be God’s will for me to become a priest, I most likely would join the Canons Regular of Saint John Cantius, the FSSP, or the ICKSP. Advice? Minor Seminary suggestions? Please help and God bless! :shrug:
