Good afternoon all! I want to formally begin the discernment process, and I also want to write a request to the Vocation Director on how I would join the Passionists. I’m having trouble on what I should include, can someone help me? This is what I have so far:
My name is John Doe, and I am writing to you seeking guidance as I discern my vocation. I had e-mailed you a while back, but I will reintroduce myself. I am a fifteen year old cradle-Catholic from New England, and I first felt the calling to the priesthood when I was around ten years old. About a year ago, through the intercession of Saint Gemma Galgani, I began to think about joining the Passionists. To this day, I wear the Black Scapular of the Passion and a picture of Gemma Galgani around my neck. This September, I will be entering my Sophomore year of high school, and I will soon be meeting with my guidance counselor to discuss my future.
Thank you for the help!
