Encounter with God's Call Weekend
From November 14-16, Conception Seminary College hosted the first Encounter with God's Call weekend of the school year. The weekend is designed for men who are discerning God's call to the priesthood or religious life. Around 70 men from different dioceses attended. The weekend consisted of communal prayer both with the student body and the monks, talks by students followed by small group discussions, and mixers/recreation time.
The talks included the vocation stories of different current students, the challenges one might encounter when answering the call, as well as a vocation question panel which the discerning men could submit questions too. There was a Holy Hour on Sunday with Reconciliation as well as Basilica tours and tours of the Clyde Monastery. The next Encounter weekend will be in the April 17-19, 2010.
