On Saturday, June 13th, four young men and their parents came to Mount St. Mary’s Seminary of the West to explore further the vocation to the diocesan priesthood and to learn more about life in the seminary.

Fr. Dan Schmitmeyer greeted everyone warmly and, after seminarians explained and led daytime prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours, he gave a presentation on discernment (a new term for many who are just starting to feel God tugging on their hearts). Following this presentation, the group spent some time in silent adoration. Then, the young men explored the seminary grounds and played ultimate frisbee while the parents were able to speak with the parents of two current seminarians. The day concluded with the discernment stories of three of our current seminarians and the way in which they came to know the Lord’s will for them to enter and to stay in discernment in the seminary.

All in all, the afternoon was a great success. Please join us now in praying for these young men and their families as they continue their discernment journey.  May they hear and have the courage to follow the will of God in their lives.
