Hello All!

I have been lurking for a few months and have learned quite a bit from this site. I just want to say "HI" and "God Bless" you all!

I hope I can contribute as well as receive knowledge.

Briefly, I'm 43, a male, and discerning the priesthood. I have met with the Director of Vocations in my Diocese and he gave me the OK. I have begun this with a period of discernment which is to last till the end of the year. After this period I am to make my decision.

I have quite a bit more to my story and hopefully it comes out as I get to know you all :) :D

I am glad to hear that you are discerning the priesthood. May God guide your decision.

What wonderful news!!

I pray daily for those being called and/or discerning holy orders...will be nice to add a 'real name' to the list!

Once you start posting in the other forums (there's a men's forum too)....you'll run into them!

Be on the look out for Obi Wan Kenobi (seminary), TP (active priest), matteo d'basio (active priest) and my mind just went blank on our other seminarian! :oops: There are a few former seminarians on the board as well....Michael Francis is one.

Welcome to the board Rich :)

Former seminarian - no.

Former religious, yes, I left the O.F.M. at the end of my simple vows to explore a monastic vocation, long story so I won't go into any details. I have added you to my prayer list and will be praying for you.

God grant you peace
Michael Francis
