Come to a Discernment Night
Do you have questions about discerning God’s call for your life? Vocations in Progress for men is an opportunity to meet priests, ask questions, and learn about their life and spirituality. The informal event will include prayer, dinner, and discussion.
FIAT: Women’s Discernment Activities
Fiat activities are open to single Catholic women ages 18-35 who are open to discerning God’s call in life. Following the example of Mary, who gave her fiat to be both virgin and mother, we desire to hear and follow God’s call to holiness through discernment of His will for our life and vocation.
