Check all statements that apply to you.

◊ Do you find your weekly ministry more life-giving and energizing than your 40-hour work week?
◊ Do you hide vocation literature under your bed or away in your closet?
◊ Do you feel called to give more or be more?
◊ Does the idea of becoming a brother, sister, or priest keeping coming back time and time again?
◊ Does your relationship with God sustain you, enliven you, invigorate you in such a way that you want to share the Good News with others?
◊ Do you long for “MORE”?
◊ Do you have a sneaking suspicion that you are on the brink of a major life decision?
◊ Are you afraid to tell friends and family that you are thinking about a Church vocation?
◊ Do you feel a recurring tug in your heart to serve others more?

If you checked five or more of the statements above, then you may have a vocation to the priesthood or religious life!
