Q. Do you have to be sure that you want to be a priest before talking to someone about it?
A. No.
Clarifying your thoughts about priesthood is a long process, but the earlier you talk to someone about the subject the better.

A. Average 6/7 years.

Q. Where does training take place.
A. Initially you enter seminary and the period of seminary training is average 6 years.

During this time, as well as being in seminary you work with groups of people in parishes outside the seminary to gain practical experience of parish work.
