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.
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.
On October 27-29th Mundelein Seminary hosted potential candidates from the Archdioceses of Chicago, Joliet, Dubuque and Grand Rapids. Our next Exploring Priesthood Weekend is March 15-17, 2024.
