Vocation Discernment Weekend

The Diocese of Gaylord has scheduled a discernment weekend for the young men of our diocese at 

St. John Vianney (SJV) College Seminary

February 17 - 19, 2022.

The weekend has been set aside to afford an opportunity for young men who are juniors in high school through college (ages 16-24)  who may be considering the priesthood to take a closer look at seminary life.

During this campus visit, guests will be able to hear testimonies from current seminarians, attend spiritual conferences with St. John Vianney priests, pray with the community and tour the University of St. Thomas (where SJV is located).

There is no cost to attend, but space is limited and

pre-registration is required.  For more information or to find out how to register, please contact Caryn Jacobs in the Diocese of Gaylord Vocations office at 989-705-3509

or email vocations@dioceseofgaylord.org
