Seminary Ready for Welcome Weekend 2/11/2016

Is God calling you to become a priest? Mount St. Mary’s Seminary is hosting a Welcome Weekend March 4-5 for men college age or older interested in discerning a call to the priesthood. 

“If you think you may be called, you will have an opportunity to allow God to speak to your heart. If you know someone who you think would be a good priest, encourage them to come to the Welcome Weekend,” said Rector Father Benedict O’Cinnsealaigh.

The overnight retreat is designed to provide a snapshot of seminary life. In addition to participating in community liturgies and prayer, attendees will be able to interact with seminarians through social activities and hear talks by seminarians and faculty about discernment and formation.   

According to seminarian Henry Hoffman, “The call to the priesthood is not generally an immediate decision but rather a process which needs time and prayer to mature. Part of the discernment process is getting to know Mary as your own spiritual mother in the same way Jesus gave her to John as his mother.”

Participants need to register by contacting the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Vocations Office: (513) 421-3131 Ext. 2890 /  or Father Tom McQuillen, Dean of Men at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary: (513) 233-6171 /
