There are many questions which might be asked of priesthood.
If you have any questions please contact email@example.com. All questions will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Why do you become a priest?
It is usually because an individual feels a personal call from God. That doesn’t mean we had flashy conversions with thunderbolts and voices. Instead, we grew to know ourselves, recognising our talents and abilities and what helped us to be the best we could be.
Over time and with prayer, we each came to believe that this was the right path for us. We decided to at least give it a try by beginning the initial formation process to enter priesthood.
How did family and friends react to your decision?
That depends. Many of us found that our family and friends were supportive and encouraging. But not everyone experiences that same support. Sometimes, because of misunderstandings or fear, families and friends are less enthusiastic about our decisions. That’s when we have to trust ourselves, the voice of God that we hear in our hearts and the good judgement of the communities and diocese that think we’re right for this and support us.
