“Becoming a priest or a man or woman religious is not primarily our own decision…Rather it is the response to a call and to a call of love.”

-Pope Francis, address to Seminarians and Novices, July 6, 2013



It is our hope that this website will help you in your discernment and give you the resources to find God’s will for your life. Please take some time to read the articles, watch the videos and visit the links to other sites to learn about the discernment process.  Also, read about our own seminarians who are pursuing their own religious vocations. Please support them with your prayers and well-wishes. You may also find it helpful to speak with our seminarians about their own vocations, and how they came to the decision to enter seminary to become Priestly Shepherds for the Diocese of Jackson, Mississippi.
