Come and See Weekends

One Weekend Can Change Your Life

The Come and See Weekend provides an opportunity for you to join other men discerning a vocation and take a deeper, more serious look at religious life. When you first come to realize God may be calling you to serve Him as a priest or brother, it seems as though you are the only person in the world with a vocation. Talking about it with your friends can be helpful to a certain point, but often your questions just don’t seem to make sense to them. This is where the Come and See Weekend can really make an impact on your discernment process. The weekend brings together men like yourself. These men share many of your questions and concerns. Often meeting other men in the same situation as yourself makes the whole discernment process a lot easier and less intimidating. In addition, the opportunity to meet and socialize with our friars, novices and student brothers also helps in seeing whether religious life is really for you.

Explore our Life and Meet our Friars

During the weekend you and the other participants will have an opportunities to:
• Join the friars in their prayer and liturgical life
• Socialize with friars and student brothers
• Participate in presentations and discussions on the vows and the reality of living religious life
• Come to a deeper understanding of Dominican spirituality and mission
