(Pet 2 :9) D iscerning my particular vocation ­ I want to discern what definite service God has planned for me. I pray, asking the Lord what He has in mind for me and I speak to friends and/or family and/or other trusted people. T esting my Vocation to the Diocesan Priesthood (initial conversations) ­ I want to ask the Church to help me discern my vocation so I speak to my parish priest or the diocesan vocations promoter who will try to support me in t his process. He might put me in touch with a spiritual director and point me in the direction of resources and gathering to give me opportunity to explore my vocation further. T esting my Vocation to the Diocesan Priesthood (formal application) ­ I ’ m ready to offer myself to the Church as a priest so, if the vocation d irector agrees that I am ready, I begin the formal application. This includes writing ab out my faith journey; a psychological assessment, undergoing safeguarding checks, a selection weekend with i nterviews looking at my relationship with God and others as well as my academic ability (to check I will be able to cope with the studies). There will also be an interview with the Bishop, who is responsible f or the final decision. B eginning my formation ­ If the Bishop accepts me I will begin my studies for the diocesan priesthood, which are likely to last 6 years (possibly less for mature s tudents) at a seminary and there may also be an additional preparatory year in Spain. This time will give me and the diocese further opportunities to discern my vocation and for me to undergo formation in the following areas: spiritual, human, pastoral and academic. As with each of these stages I will be offe red support in lots of different ways and will need to take increasing responsibility for my own formation. Eligible men enquiring into priesthood as a vocation are asked to contact their Parish Priest.
