Question by  Mazellett (36)

How do I join a religious order?

I think this will be a great move for me but don't know how to start.


Answer by  John (9008)

The rules for joining vary amongst orders, even within the same religion. Most will want you to go through a trial period where you pray and seriously consider whether such an austere life is really for you. The only way to learn the exact requirements is contacting an order.

Talk to the priest/pastor/spiritual leader of your church. They will be able to connect you with the officials that handle this, as well as writing you a recommendation.

You need to get information about different religious orders and pray for guidance in choosing the most appropriate for you. Once the order has been chosen, try to visit it for a short period of time, talk to the members of the order.

You just consider the religion that you think is the correct one for you and start attending their services. After you are sure that you made the right decision, simply talk to a leader of the organization.
