What types of Priests are there?


Would I call it orders?
I've heard of Franciscan, Jesuits, Deacons, Dominican Order, Benedictines.
How do you know which is the right one for you?
I just want to be a regular Parish Priest, but don't know where to start.


What you’re talking about is diocesan priest who is incardinated into a particular diocese.

You need to contact your diocesan vocations director.

Order priests belong to the religious communities. They have to go through religious life then seminary–usually.
