Vocation Discernment Events

The Jesuits of the USA Central and Southern Province invite young men to learn more about life as a companion of Jesus Christ in the Society of Jesus. 

The province is hosting a Come and See Weekend (Vengan y Vean) in San Juan, Puerto Rico, March 31 - April 2. 

There will also be a Holy Week Retreat at Montserrat Retreat House in Lake Dallas, Texas, April 9 - 12.

The retreats are open to any single Catholic man between the ages of 18 and 50, exploring a vocation to ministry in the church, specifically as a Jesuit priest or brother. Men can learn more about the Jesuit way of life and spend time with Jesuits. 

There is no charge to participate in the retreats, other than travel to the retreat location. Some financial assistance is available to those on a very limited budget.

For more information, contact Fr. Randy Gibbens at 510-883-4007 or UCSVocationCoordinator@Jesuits.org
