One Thursday a month men gather at the House of Discernment for an evening of prayer, discussion and fraternity. It is difficult to discern a vocation to the priesthood or religious life on your own, actually it is impossible. We need encouragement from others in our journey. It is amazing to see young men grow in their discernment in just a short time because they have the reassurance they are not in this alone. Here is what to expect:
6:30 pm Arrival
6:45 pm Evening Prayer in the chapel
7:00 pm Dinner and Discussion
8:45 pm Night Prayer in the chapel
9:00 pm Departure
The group changes form year to year as men gain the courage to move one direction or another. Last year three from the group entered the seminary for the Archdiocese of Portland and one began his formal discernment with the Jesuits. Come discern with us!
