These groups are designed to explore a priestly vocation with other like-minded men through prayer and sharing vocation stories and experiences.

They are designed to assist you in discovering if the priesthood is your true vocation and build your relationship with Christ along the way. If you are a faithful, single, Roman Catholic man, between the ages of 18 and 40, and are asking yourself whether God is calling you to be a priest, you are cordially invited to attend this month’s discernment meeting on November 23rd, from 4PM to 6PM at St. Charles Borromeo Parish, 2226 Riverton Rd., Cinnaminson.
