Contact the Vocation Director: Discernment always happens with the help of the Church.  The archdiocese needs to get to know you better before offering you a seminary application.

The application process: Applying to become a seminarian is a bit like applying to college, but with additional screening components such as background checks and medical and psychological screening.

Approval by the archbishop: Archbishop Lori is ultimately the decision maker when it comes to seminary applicants.
