From: Father Branson Hipp, Associate Director, Office of Vocations
One of the most successful initiatives of the Office of Vocations in recent years has been the December discernment retreat for men. We have a number of seminarians in the program who are “alumni” from the retreat. This year’s retreat is December 30 and 31 at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit. These dates have worked well for college students who are home on Christmas break, as well as working people who have time off during the Christmas holiday.
The retreat includes talks by priests and seminarians, a panel discussion and time for prayer and reflection. Bishop Konzen is joining us for Mass.
If you know of a man (or men) ages 18-40 who would like to attend, please have him/them register at https://www.calledbychrist.com/ia-events/discernment-retreat. Space is limited.
Thank you for your support of vocations. I ask for your prayers for the retreat and for vocations work in the Archdiocese of Atlanta. May God bless you in your ministry.
