The Office of Vocations sponsors a number of discernment opportunities and retreats during the year.

day of prayer and discernment usually is held once or twice a year for men and women, ages 16-50, who are looking at the possibility of priesthood or religious life. These days generally consist of prayer, sharing and a meal.

Project Andrew Dinner and Mass with Bishop Checchio is held for those men, high school-age and up, who feel drawn to exploring the possibility of priesthood. If you are interested, please see your parish priest who will forward your name to the Vocations Office.
