The process for application to study for priesthood in Scotland has a number of elements.
First, there is a process of discernment carried out in conversation with the Diocesan Vocations Director (click here for contact details).
When the enquirer is ready, and at the recommendation of the Vocations Director, the formal application to the Bishop is prepared and submitted. This process is facilitated and coordinated nationally via Priests for Scotland. Application forms are available only through Vocations Directors from Priests for Scotland.
As part of the Application process, there are weekend retreat and reflection gatherings for all applicants.
