Quo Vadis Days

Quo Vadis — Translation — “Where are you going?”

Legend tells us that St. Peter asked Jesus this question on the outskirts of Rome. And we know where Jesus went in response to His Father’s will.

Quo Vadis Days are a 4 day/3 night camp sponsored by the Archdiocese of Chicago Vocations Office and in collaboration with the Diocese of Joliet Vocation Office. This unique engaging event is 100% seminarian led.

Join us for Quo Vadis Days and experience dynamic talks, small group discussions, meaningful prayer experience, including Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, and Eucharistic Adoration. We have a dynamic and fun camp, with great food, basketball, volleyball, Ultimate, campfires and much more.

This retreat is open to all 13 – 18 year old young men who want to learn more about the priesthood. Those attending will have a life changing encounter with Christ while having the time of their life.
