Thought about joining the priesthood?

Perhaps the upcoming Come and See vocations weekend retreat at St. Joseph’s Seminary College in Saint Benedict will offer some encouragement.

The weekend is scheduled Nov. 8-10 and is open for all men 16 years old and older.

Activities include conferences on seminary life and discernment, as well as Mass, adoration, and confession. The retreatants will typically sit in on philosophy and theology classes.

Meals and beds are provided but retreatants must bring bed linens, pillows, towels and personal items.

To reserve a spot call 225-336-8778 or email Director of Vocations Father Andrew Merrick at or Michelle Blalock of the Office of Vocations at
