The call to priesthood is an invitation to enter more fully into the life of God. This call is experienced in a variety of ways: through personal prayer, by involvement in the life of the Church and through the people of God.

Saint Meinrad guides each student through an exploration of his unique vocation, which leads to a deeper understanding of his capacity to serve God.

Preparing for priesthood is accomplished in four mutually supportive programs:

Integrating these programs nourishes the student and helps him discern his call to priesthood, as well as prepares him to effectively fulfill the duties and tasks of today's Catholic priest.
