How do people know if God wants them to join a religious community or become a priest?

These questions may help you get in touch with good choices you will want to consider.

  • How would you describe your relationship with Jesus?
  • What makes you most happy at this point in your life? How do you share that with others?

  • How are you involved in a parish community or youth group?
  • Who or what supports you in trying to be the best person you can be?
  • How are you of service to others?.
  • What are you doing right now to help you decide your future?
  • Many possible answers to these questions are "right." Eavesdrop on your own answers to hear what makes you happy, what gives you energy, what direction you've already taken. Some answers may suggest a movement toward priesthood or religious life. Such answers may lead to further questions. Ask those questions of a priest, brother or religious sister—soon!

    Research indicates that the number one reason people fail to consider priesthood or religious life as an option is because no one ever invited them to do so. It isn't for everyone, but it could be for you or for one of your friends. So I'm inviting you to find out more about this possibility.

    I dare you to consider it! It just might change your life and the lives of others as well.
