‘Come and See’ October 14-15-16 at Seminary
To be a priest … don’t you have to give up everything – your family, your friends, the things you enjoy? Don’t you have to be super holy, super smart, or somehow different? “Come and see” if this really is the case!
Every young man eventually has to make some hard decisions – college, career, marriage, family, religious life. How do I know what’s right? Does God care what I decide? If you’ve ever thought about the priesthood, it’s worth taking a weekend to learn how to listen for God’s plans for your future.
The Byzantine Catholic Seminary of Saints Cyril and Methodius is hosting a “Come and See” weekend for men ages 18 to 35 who may be considering a vocation to the priesthood in the Byzantine Catholic Church. The event runs from Friday evening, 14 October through Sunday afternoon, 16 October 2016 at the Seminary (3605 Perrysville Avenue) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The weekend retreat is free of charge and will include sharing liturgical services and meals with the Seminary community, an introduction to the Seminary formation program, a tour of the Seminary, gatherings with the Seminarians, talks, and a panel discussion.
The retreat is conducted in a “no pressure, no hard-sell” environment. The atmosphere is prayerful, positive, and fraternal.
Any man seeking further information or wishing to register for this “Come and See” retreat of discovery is encouraged to contact his vocation director and use the online registration at www.bcs.edu. Deadline for registrations is the 29th of September.
