INSEARCH is a two-phase, six-month program (October through April) for post-college men with a serious interest in diocesan priesthood. Meetings are held every week in the evenings at the Quigley Pastoral Center in downtown Chicago, which provides men with the opportunity to continually engage the question about priesthood. In addition, a small fraternity develops among the men who participate in INSEARCH, sharing a common bond in the search to gain clarity around the question of priesthood.

The program helps men gain clarity in their vocation by discussing discernment and the call of discipleship and priesthood. Priests tell their stories and offer presentations on spirituality and the life of a priest in Chicago. There are weekly prayer times and scripture reflections, and a weekend retreat provides participants time and space to explore the movement of God in their lives. INSEARCH encourages spiritual direction for the participant, to help him on his spiritual journey.
