On this page we have provided the outline for discernment toward orders or being ordained a vocational deacon or priest. 

Please note that the discernment process toward ordination begins with prayer. We are all called to something within our baptismal ministry. This particular process is intended to help those who want to prayerfully explore with others whether their particular call is to ordained life or something else. 

Above you will find a video on discernment to religious life.

Below you will see links to another video on discernment generally.
