My seminary interview


#1

alright so I just had my second the last step today for my seminary application.

I had an interview with 3 priest and 1 sister. One of the priest was the vocations director, and the other 2 were just priest from our diocese.

I was interviewed along with one other guy I went first and he went second.

we went into a conference room I sat at the head of the table and they sat 2 on either side.

my vocations director asked me to just tell the others who didn’t know me so well to let them know more about my self. So i did.

then it was just a question an answer session

they asked questions like what do you think the joys of priesthood will be the struggles.

also if you didn’t become a priest what would you consider doing.

how would you handle isolation.

along with other questions

it went great.

next and final step is an interview with the bishop. I’m waiting to hear from my vocations director to set that up.

they did ask is there anything in the church that you want to change that bothers you

and I respond by saying I would like to see an increase of promoting vocations ;)
