This retreat is designed for 17-35 year olds who are interested in learning more about seminary life. During Encounter, the participants further discern the call to priesthood and learn about college seminary life. Throughout the weekend, participants pray, meet, and relax with seminarians. Together we all seek to listen for God’s voice and our call.
On Saturday afternoon, you’ll meet seminarians who act as ambassadors, welcoming and guiding you through the weekend. As you attend the talks and activities, you’ll get to know them and the other participants who are discerning their vocation. You also have the option to stay until Monday to attend seminary classes and meet faculty and staff. Other features of Encounter include:
Transportation will be provided to and from the seminary. Please notify Kim Kearbey in the Office of Vocations to secure your spot. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (417)-866-0841 ext. 1103.
