I have a question regarding the pre-theology program. I know that each diocese deals with each man uniquely in his plan of studies, but I am not sure how I would be placed if I were to be accepted by my diocese. I can tell you that my diocese is in Florida, but I will refrain from telling you which one exactly. I will be graduating a state university with a B.A. in Philosophy next spring and I will be applying to my diocese at the end of this calendar year.
My question is this: The Pre-Theology program is mainly composed of Philosophy credits for two years of study, most if not all I have taken. Has anyone else experienced this? I have been told by a priest that has been affiliated with the Vocations Board that there could be many different situations that play out: one or two years in pre-the, straight to the major seminary, or I could be sent out of state to a different seminary.
I am not worrying about this as I know that my vocation is in the Lord’s hands, but I am rather curious about what could happen. Have any of you been in my boat, or do you know of someone who has?
