It is a unique environment in which men who are thinking about being priests are gathered together to learn and discern more about their vocation. This discernment takes place through study (there are academic classes) Daily Mass and prayer, service (apostolic/volunteer work) and community life.
A Catholic Priest is a man who has been called by God to serve the Church in the person of Christ the Head. He is a man who loves God, the Church and the People he serves. He is a man rooted in prayer, who joyfully and sacrificially lives his life for others.
The word vocation comes from the Latin word “vocare” which means “to call”. Throughout history, God has called his people. As members of God’s people, we believe he calls us too. God made us and He knows why He did so. God has a plan for our lives. His plan is our vocation.
