Is God calling you to a vocation as a priest?

One way to find out if you have a true calling is by attending a free weekend discernment retreat at St. Patrick’s Seminary & University in Menlo Park Feb. 21-23.

The retreat, hosted by the Archdiocese of San Francisco’s office of vocations is open to all single men 21 years or older and includes lodging and meals. Attendance does not imply further obligation.

Spokane, Washington, Bishop Thomas A. Daly will lead retreat conferences at the retreat this year.

The office of vocation hosts shorter discernment gatherings each month at two local parishes. In San Mateo County, Father Tom Martin leads the meetings at St. Pius Parish at 1100 Woodside Road in Redwood City on the first Monday of each month from 6:15-8:30 p.m. In San Francisco, Father Cameron Faller leads meetings at Star of the Sea Parish, 4420 Geary Blvd.,  on the first Thursday of each month.

To register for the weekend discernment retreat, contact Father Cameron Faller at, or (415) 614-5683.
