Exploring Priesthood Weekend
The retreat to help men discern God’s call to the diocesan priesthood. Throughout a weekend of prayer, discussions, presentations of diocesan priesthood and group interaction, men begin to better understand God’s movement in their life. The next Exploring Priesthood Weekend will occur October 25-27, 2019 at Mundelein Seminary, located about 40 miles north of downtown Chicago.
During the Exploring Priesthood Weekend, men participate in presentations on the steps for discerning; values of priesthood; seminary life, academics, spiritual formation and pastoral ministry; and seminarians will share their vocation stories. There are several worship opportunities, and men are encouraged to ask questions, interact, pray in the chapels, walk the grounds, and/or use the recreational facilities. By fully engaging in the opportunities provided on the retreat, men are more able to understand where God is leading them.
