Discerning a Vocation to the Priesthood
The Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter will be hosting Discernment Days June 26-29, 2019 in Houston. These days are for young men (age 16 and a Junior in High School to age 30) who are open to discerning a call to the priesthood. The Days will include presentations on such topics as Seminary Life and the Life of Prayer, the Life of ministry, the Gift of Celibacy, and the Missionary Life of the Ordinariate. Centered in prayer, there will be daily Mass and Eucharistic Holy Hours. The time spent together will also include time for conversation and recreation. The Discernment Days will conclude on Saturday by being a part of the congregation at the Mass of Ordination to the Priesthood at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Walsingham.
In order to provide the attention that discerners need, participation is limited to 12 young men who will be selected from among the applicants. A Pastor’s letter of recommendation will help determine their acceptance to the program. Attendees will be responsible for their own transportation to/from Houston, otherwise they will be guests of the Ordinariate.
