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