Vocation Discernment Weekends
The Jesuit Vocation Office offers several weekend vocational discernment retreat opportunities. These retreats are scheduled throughout the year for men interested in exploring the possibility of a vocation to the Society of Jesus.
The retreats are designed to give participants exposure to the history, life and spirituality of the Society of Jesus, all in an effort to help them develop tools for solid spiritual discernment.
It is not necessary to commit oneself to the Candidates program in order to attend one of these retreats; however, after reflection and conversation a participant may wish to further his discernment in this program.
