Quo Vadis Days is a time of recreation, fellowship, prayer, and discussions to help you explore our Lord’s call in your life. There will be priests, seminarians, and other young men like yourself gathered together for these days. Activities will include prayer (Holy Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Liturgy of the Hours, Rosary, etc.), hiking, games, bonfires, recreation and sports (soccer, capture the flag, volleyball, swimming, Ultimate Frisbee, flag football), talks, great food, and discussions.

 

Legend tells us that St. Peter asked Jesus this question on the outskirts of Rome. We know where Jesus went in response to His Father’s will.

Where are you going? What is the Father’s will for you?

The Lord in His love has a great and wonderful plan for you. Jesus’ plan for some men is to be one of His priests. The priesthood is an indispensable and awesome mission. Many of the Church’s greatest saints have been priests. Even though Jesus continues to call young men to this life, sometimes the world we live in makes it difficult to hear His call.

A time to share our faith and meet other young men seeking God’s will.

 Who:  Young men, ages 15-25
 Cost:  Free, due to anonymous donors

“It is only when a young man has had a personal experience of Christ that he can truly understand the Lord’s will and consequently his own vocation. The better you know Jesus the more his mystery attracts you. The more you discover him, the more you are moved to seek him.”
- Pope Benedict XVI
