Fall Vocation Discernment Opportunity for Young Men

“Exploring Priesthood Weekend” is a retreat designed to help men discern God’s call to the priesthood.  The retreat is held at Mundelein Seminary October 4th-6th.  The weekend includes presentations on diocesan priesthood and discernment, group discussions, opportunities to meet seminarians and hear their vocation stories, and ample opportunities for silent prayer and reflection.

If you are a man in college or already graduated, you are welcome to attend the retreat.  Please contact Fr. Francis Bitterman, the Vocation Director, to register for the event and to learn more about other discernment programs that are available to help you discern God's call to the priesthood.  You can contact Fr. Francis via e-mail at:
