Do you have an interest in becoming a consecrated religious?
I'm not only serious, but have contacted at least one other religious community.
I would like to seriously look into becoming a consecrated religious.
Yes, I've thought about becoming a consecrated religious.
Hmmm... I haven't really thought about it until now.
Do you find yourself saying, “I want to give myself totally to God”?
Yes, this expresses my feelings right now.

I have only a small interest in prayer.
Not really... I don't get to church much.
How do you feel about wearing a habit?
Wearing a habit such as the Knights’ would be just fine.
Um, I’d feel more comfortable just wearing jeans.
Do you have any school debt, car payments, or other debt?
No debt at all.
I have some outstanding debt (under $5,000).
My debt is more than $5,000.
What about other aspects of religious life?
The religious vows might be a challenge, but they don’t seem out of the question.
The vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience seem too overwhelming.
What do you think of community life?

In prayer, I feel drawn to religious life.
I've prayed about this, but so far God hasn't made an answer clear to me.
I haven't really prayed about this.
Do you think you might have an interest in a community life of prayer, adoration, and service of the Church?
Yes, I can see the value of serving Christ in this way.
No, this is not my area of interest.
Do you have a spiritual director—one who guides you in discerning your vocation?
Yes, I have a spiritual director.
No, but I would like to find one.
Would you be willing to visit our friary in Lincoln, Nebraska, for a while to see what our life is like?
Yes, I'd be interested. Tell me what's involved.
Not right now.
