Priesthood Discernment Group Meetings to Resume in August

larger font

Catholic men between the ages of 17-48 discerning a possible call to Priesthood are invited to attend the Diocese of Raleigh’s Priesthood Discernment Group meetings held on the third Saturday of each month.  The meetings are open to men who are beginning to contemplate a vocation or are in a more serious stage of discernment.

The monthly gathering provides a fraternal environment in which to discuss the possible call to Priesthood with other men who are also examining the call. The group discusses issues central to the call within the context of prayer, presentations and discussion. 

The meeting begins with the celebration of Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral at 9:00 AM, celebrated by Vocations Director Fr. Ned Shlesinger. The group then proceeds to the nearby Vocations Office for discussion, with the session concluding with lunch. Pre-registration is not required. Men interested in attending can do so any month. Additional information is available by contacting the Vocations Office at 919-832-6279 or vocations@raldioc.org. The next Discernment Group Meeting is Saturday, August 20, 2011.
