Have You Considered God's Calling In Your Life?
Young men over the age of 21 are invited to participate in a weekend retreat at St Patrick's Seminary and University on the weekend of January 18th through Jan 20th 2013. The retreat, led by the Auxiliary Bishop of San Jose, Thomas A. Daly, is designed to help participants to discern the Lord's call to the priesthood. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and speak with St. Patrick's seminarians who can describe their calling and share their experience and vocational stories.
There is no cost to participants for the retreat. All fees are covered for room, meals, and programs from Friday dinner through lunch on Sunday. However, participants must be sponsored by their parish priest and the Vocations Director of their diocese. (click here for a listing of vocation directors: Diocesan Contacts)

The program begins at 4 p.m. on Friday, January 18th and ends with a Mass celebrated by San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone at 10 a.m., January 20th.
