Becoming A Priest

Becoming a priest is a long process of formation and requires a good discernment of God’s will in one’s life.  The process of entering into a seminary formation program, to discern and prepare for ordination to the priesthood is also a full process whereby the applicant works with the Archdiocesan Vocation Office to present himself to the Church for possible entrance to the seminary. 

This process has two main steps:

  1. Application for Sponsorship by the Archbishop of Boston, and
  2. Interview at a seminary for admittance. The Candidate (or Applicant) does the whole application process through the Vocation Office of the Archdiocese of Boston.
