INSEARCH is a six-month program (October through March) for post-college men with a serious interest in diocesan priesthood.  Meetings are held every week in the evenings in downtown Chicago.

The benefit of the INSEARCH Discernment Group is that it provides a weekly opportunity to
engage the question about priesthood. In addition, a small fraternity develops among the
men who participate in INSEARCH, sharing a common bond in the search to gain clarity around the question of priesthood.

 

WHEN
INSEARCH meets weekly in the evenings.
There are two phases with a six week break at Christmas:
Phase I: October - December
Phase II: February - April

 

WHERE
INSEARCH takes place at Archbishop Quigley
Pastoral Center, 835 North Rush Street,
Chicago, Illinois, 60611 

 

WHAT HAPPENS AT INSEARCH? 
There are presentations on:
-evangelization
-prayer
-how to discern God's will
-celibacy

The program helps men gain clarity in their vocation by discussing discernment and the call of discipleship and priesthood. Priests tell their stories and offer presentations on spirituality and the life of a priest in Chicago. There are weekly prayer times and scripture reflections. A weekend retreat provides participants time and space to explore the movement of God in their lives. INSEARCH encourages spiritual direction for the participant to help him on his spiritual journey.
