Exploring Priesthood Weekend
Exploring Priesthood Weekend is a retreat designed to help men discern God’s call to the diocesan priesthood. To be called by God to serve him as a priest means to have one’s soul stirred deep within.
Throughout a weekend of prayer, discussions, presentations of diocesan priesthood and group interaction, men begin to better understand God’s movement in their life.
WHEN: Oct. 27-29, 2017
Jan 12-14, 2018
