If you've come this far, don't stop here. Some don't take the next step in their discernment because they are worried about going too fast. Our job is to help you to hear and answer God’s call calmly and without pressure – wherever that may lead. The Holy Cross Office of Vocations and Formation Programs are designed to give you the tools to discern God's will in your life, to help you make God known, loved, and served.

So that we can help you, tell us more about yourself....

Admissions Criteria:

As the Office of Vocations for the United States Province of Holy Cross we are only able to accept applicants who meet the following criteria:

  • Baptized, confirmed and practicing Roman Catholic men.  One will need to be baptized for at least three years before entering into formation.
  • A US citizen or permanent resident.
  • At least 17 years old for Old College
  • No older than 35 if applying to the Postulant Program
  • Free of psychological or other medical conditions that would prohibit one from exercising a full life of ministry.
