Those who feel called to the priesthood should first contact the Vocations Director for the Archdiocese. The Director will speak with each person and suggest some program of prayer and charitable works that could be undertaken. He will also ask the prospective student to keep in contact with his parish priest as well as the Vocations Director.

At an appropriate time, if the person wishes to continue, he will be asked to make an application and to collect various documents and references which will be passed on to the Seminary Rector. Towards the end of each year, an interviewing panel meets and each applicant is interviewed. As a result of the interview, a report is forwarded to the Archbishop who will accept, delay or refuse the applicant's request.
