‘Come and See’ Discernment Retreat for Young Men Scheduled at Seminary Nov. 12-14

Young men of the Diocese of Allentown ages 15-plus, including young adults, are invited to a fall “Come and See” retreat Friday, Nov. 12 through Sunday, Nov. 14 at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, Philadelphia.

This is a great opportunity to check out seminary life and learn more about discerning the vocation God desires for you.

The discernment retreat will include meals and prayer time with our seminarians, a tour of the shrines of Philadelphia, daily Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, and other helpful discernment opportunities for young men to spend time with our Eucharistic Lord as they discern their vocation in life.

Room and meals will be provided on this retreat, including a stop for cheesesteaks.

Deadline to register is Friday, Nov. 5. To register, visit or contact Father Mark Searles in the Office of Vocations at 610-437-0755 or
