July 31, 2015 - August 2, 2015
Are you a young man, 10th grade or older, thinking about becoming a priest? You are invited to a Priesthood Discernment Retreat. It will be held at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, 7601 N. Grandview Avenue in Odessa, beginning Friday evening, July 31, and continuing through Sunday morning, August 2.
Seminarians, priests, and Bishop Michael J. Sis will be on hand during the retreat to share stories about hearing God's call, what seminary is like, and the joys and challenges of being a priest. Those discerning a call will have an opportunity to meet other like-minded young men from around the diocese to discuss their thoughts about the future.
The retreat will conclude with an opportunity to attend the "Kickball with Clerics" event planned by the Diocesan Vocations Office in the Odessa/Midland area. Kickball with Clerics will pit the clergy and seminarians of the San Angelo Diocese against the youth of the diocese on Sunday afternoon.
There is no charge for the Priesthood Discernment Retreat. Food will be provided by various parish groups in the area. For more information or to register, please call Fr. Mark Woodruff at 432-202-0336 or talk to your pastor.
