College Seminary Discernment Weekend


Any young man who is a high school junior or older and is seriously considering applying to seminary is encouraged to attend the College Seminary Discernment Weekend April 4-5 at St. Mark College Seminary in Erie.

The weekend is designed to assist young men to discern whether they might be called to diocesan priesthood, to familiarize them with the basic goals of seminary formation, and to help each individual determine whether he is ready to move forward with the application process.

There will be presentations by seminary faculty and seminarians, informal interaction with seminarians, a tour of Gannon University in Erie, Liturgy of the Hours, Eucharistic Adoration, confession and Palm Sunday Mass.

Accommodations and all meals are at no cost.

For further information and/or to register for the weekend, contact Father Matthew Reese, Diocesan Director of Vocations, at 814-317-2681 or
