Quick background: I am a senior college student about to graduate with an undergraduate degree in engineering. Although this is a field I enjoy, I have been fascinated with the church, philosophy, and have lived a spiritual life my entire life. The thought of entering seminary and pursuing the religious life has crossed my mind countless times, and I continuously pray that God’s will be done in my life.
I have a deep desire to immerse myself in the place that stands at the center of my catholic faith. I am interested in studying philosophy/theology in Rome at a Pontifical University, as I know of several clergy having studied there. I would like this time to grow intellectually and continuing growing in my faith, ultimately discerning what God has in store for my life (whether lay or clergy).
Is there an application process or information provided online about attending one of these universities as a lay person, I am having trouble finding it. Has anyone studied before in places like Angelicum?
