Vocation Events

                         

The Vocations Office offers several discernment weekends and days of recollection each year for men who are interested in the Capuchin way of life.  These events provide an opportunity to learn just what the Capuchins are all about and to meet other men who are also discerning God's call in their life. 

Throughout these weekends and days of recollection, there are many opportunities for private and communal prayer, reflection, and social gatherings, as well as presentations on discernment, religious life and the Capuchin Franciscan charism. 

The next scheduled discernment weekends for 2014 are listed below.

Discernment Weekend- August 8-10 - Mariandale Retreat Center, Ossining, NY - The presenter will be Father Senan Taylor, O.F.M., Cap.

Discernment Weekend- October 3-5 - Divine Compassion Center, White Plains, NY - The presenter will be Father Michael Connolly, O.F.M., Cap.
