To serve in the church


In the Sunday church bulletin, it was stated:
Vocations If he calls you to serve in the Church, will you follow him as a priest?

My follow-up question to new seminarians: When did you receive the call to the priesthood?


I first received a call when I was about 19 or 20. It then took another 13 years before I entered the seminary… You might say I took the scenic route :rolleyes:



I have just received the call to discern the priesthood.
