A word from Father Bob

   

Our first reading today from the Book of Genesis tells the story of Abraham and his son Isaac and how God puts Abraham to the test by demanding the sacrifice of his son Isaac. When I read this passage I was reminded of a story that supposedly comes to us from Africa and it tells about how hunters are able to capture wild monkeys.The hunter takes a heavy pot with an opening just large enough for the monkey to reach through with his paw and then the hunter baits the jar with nuts which naturally attract the curious monkey.

Are you being called?

Discernment Weekends are a unique experience for anyone feeling a call to the priesthood. Spending four days living at the seminary provides you with a first-hand opportunity to see what it's like from the inside.

Attending a Discernment Weekend is perfect for anyone from the Archdiocese of Detroit (high school senior to 55 years old) who is discerning a vocation to the priesthood. These weekends provide you with more tools for proper discernment.

A large part of the Discernment Weekend focuses on the Aspects of Seminary Life and the pillars of formation (Spiritual, Human, Intellectual and Pastoral). These four presentations are the foundation of the seminary formation program and will be the most informative part of the weekend.

Typically, 8 - 12 people attend each Discernment Weekend. Please click here for a sample schedule. This will give you a better understanding of what occurs on the Discernment Weekend.
