Come and See Weekend for High School Men
Oct 27 @ 7:00 pm – Oct 29 @ 12:00 pm

A Come And See Weekend is a perfect opportunity for men who are considering a vocation to come to St Charles Borromeo Seminary to see what seminary life is like and explore the possibility of their own call to the priesthood.

This is an ideal retreat for someone who is actively pursuing a call to the priesthood.

It would also be a good opportunity for a man who has been evangelized to explore the possibility of a call to the priesthood!

Unique to this Come and See Weekend, is the opportunity to join the seminary community for the Archdiocesan Pilgrimage to Washington DC. Participants will leave from the Seminary on Saturday morning, returning on Saturday evening. Transportation will be provided.

In addition, the weekend includes reflections on the priesthood, vocation stories from seminarians. Attendees will join the seminary for the Liturgy of the Hours, Mass and Eucharistic Adoration.

For more information, contact Fr. DeLacy, Vocations Director, at 610-667-5778, or Sue Matour, Associate Director at smatour@archphila.org

Heed Your Call Fundraiser @ St. Charles Borromeo Seminary
Nov 4 @ 4:30 pm

In order to provide the number and type of vocational and discernment opportunities that are profiled in the Playbook, the Vocation Office for the Diocesan Priesthood relies on the generosity of our friends and supporters.  No donation is too small and all monies are directly applied to the programs and events aimed at helping men become better disciples of Jesus Christ and to answer His vocational call, whatever that may be, but we hope for many that it is to the Diocesan Priesthood.

This annual benefit will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2017, the Feast of our Patron, St. Charles Borromeo.  This event is held at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary and the evening begins with Mass at 4:30PM during which we thank Almighty God for the gift of His son, Jesus Christ, and receive Jesus in the Most Holy Eucharist.  Following Mass, all are invited to gather in the historic Eakins Room for wine, hors d’oeuvres and a brief program of music and vocation stories by some of our Philadelphia seminarians and newly ordained clergy.

If you, or someone you know, would like to be invited to this event, please contact Sue Matour in the Vocation Office at 610-667-5778 or smatour@archphila.org.
