Exploring Priesthood
Weekend

 

A retreat designed to help
men discern God’s call to
the diocesan priesthood.  

Exploring Priesthood Weekend

is a retreat designed to help men discern God's call to the diocesan priesthood. To be called by God to serve him as a priest means to have one's soul stirred deep within.

Throughout a weekend of prayer, discussions, presentations of diocesan priesthood and group interaction, men begin to better understand God's movement in their life.

WHERE

Exploring Priesthood Weekends are held at Mundelein Seminary, 1000 East Maple Avenue, Mundelein, Illinois, 60060. The Seminary is located about 40 miles north of downtown Chicago and easily accessible by car or train. Transportation is available to and from O'Hare Airport by request.

 

WHAT HAPPENS ON THESE WEEKENDS?

There are presentations on:

  • Practical steps for discerning a vocation
  • Values of priesthood
  • Seminary life, academics, spiritual formation and pastoral ministry
  • Seminarians share their vocation stories

There are several worship opportunities including the celebration of Mass. Men are encouraged to ask questions, interact with seminarians and priests, pray in chapels, walk the grounds, or use the recreational facilities (pool, gymnasium, weight room). By fully engaging in the opportunities provided on the retreat, men are more able to understand where God is leading them.
