Discernment Weekend for Older Men
Are you a man over thirty, wondering whether a change of direction in life may be an option, perhaps towards priesthood or religious life? The primary focus of the weekend is the possibility of priestly vocation in later life so it is limited to men between the ages of 30 and 55. However, it is also suitable for men not specifically considering priesthood as it is not expected that any major choice or commitment will be made during the weekend. It will take place in a prayerful spirit and aims to provide tools for reflection and discernment about future choices. It will be mainly in silence but there will be some input and the opportunity for one-to-one guidance.
Fr Peter Verity is Spiritual Director at the Beda College in Rome which trains men over 30 for priesthood. https://bedacollege.org/
