Taking a year off?

Monday, May 15, 2006

As some of you know I am praying a fifty four day novena. Something has been brought to my attention that I like. As some of you know, I am having a hard time deciding between entering the college seminary program or not. One of the main reasons is I feel lack of experience in life, the only life experience I have is getting drunk in Europe.

Something I haven't thought of is taking a year off between high school and college, and go on NET, National evangelical team for a full year doing retreats at parishes all across the states. This would provide me with much needed discernment I think. I know one of the deacons being ordained to the priesthood was in NET so I am going to talk to him. I feel that possibly being involved with NET would help me to continue to live my Catholic Faith and let me do a lot of catechesis.

I don't know howt his would affect entrance to college, ie: ACT scores and such. But I think this would be something beneficial for me.

I'm going to talk with the vocations director about this and see what he thinks.

In Christ Jesus,

Ed L.
