Priesthood Vocation Discernment Groups – The Melchizedek Project
Every Catholic man should at least consider priesthood as an option.
Is Jesus calling you to be a Catholic priest? It’s not an easy question to answer. It takes prayer and study to discover your true vocation. The Melchizedek Project is a discernment group of men like you who love Jesus Christ and His Church, and who are willing to talk with other like-minded men about their future.
The group meetings aren’t meant to convince you that priesthood is your vocation. You could very well be called to marriage or another vocation. But if you’re a faithful Catholic man – even if you’re currently dating – at some point you have to ask yourself whether God is calling you to be a priest.

Am I Being Called?
To be precise, a man only “knows” he is called when he is ordained! However, there are many positive signs that can point to a vocation, and which can help a man make the decision to enter the seminary and continue along the path towards the priesthood.

Now that you are here and no one is watching or listening, read these statements to yourself, take them to prayer, then act on what you know is right. God knows, you may be called to the priesthood!
If some of these statements reflect how you feel, if your heart is filled with zeal after reading these statements, if you sense a greater desire to find out if God is calling you to live in black and white, get in touch with Fr. Patrick Beneteau, Vocations Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have no fear, the Lord wants only what is best for you – and so do we.
