If I request information about joining a religious organisation, will I be pressured into joining?

Not at all. Those responsible for vocations in a diocese or religious congregation will fully respect your wishes and intentions, if you make these clear to them.

There should be no pressure or excessive outside influence in coming to a decision about vocation. It is a deeply personal thing, between the person who may feel called and God who calls.

A good spiritual guide will exert no pressure but will listen respectfully to your thoughts and feelings helping you to pick up on the subtle, ‘gentle breeze’ of the Holy Spirit. Ideally both of you should be open to seeking and finding God’s will and not your own.
