If you and Fr. Griffin decide that it is appropriate to apply for seminary formation, you will fill out an application which includes biographical information as well as a number of essays and short answers. The application process includes interviews with priests, references from others who know you, your educational history and transcripts, a background check, and a psychological evaluation (which is arranged and paid for by the Office of Priest Vocations). It is a lengthy, but also fruitful, process for those who are considering the call to the priesthood.
