Discerning in College

Being faithful in college is hard.
Discerning a vocation in college can be even harder.

Get Involved in Catholic Campus Ministry or a local parish

Getting involved in Campus Ministry or at a local parish can help you discover your gifts and how God is calling you to use them to serve Him and build up the Church.  Entering into these communities can help you to gain clarity in your discernment.

Meet with a Spiritual Director/Mentor

A good spiritual director can help you cultivate a healthy prayer life. Finding a good spiritual director can be difficult.  If you need assistance, please contact the Office of Vocations.  This is also a helpful resource: SpirtualDirection.com

Pursue Friendship & Community

Friendship and community are crucial to growing in faith as young adults. In particular, if you are discerning, please fill out the form on the homepage so that we can connect you to a discernment small group.

Cultivate a Healthy Prayer Life

Oftentimes we think we know how to pray but there is so much we can learn regarding prayer. A good spiritual director can help with this.

Attend Office of Vocations Events including the annual Discernment Retreat

The Office of Vocations will be hosting many events. Events can be found on our home page. These events are opportunities to grow in deeper love for God and His Church. Our annual discernment retreat is at the beginning of every January – we strongly encourage you to attend! This is an annual opportunity to grow in prayer with other men desiring to grow in holiness and discover God’s call for their life. Registration for retreat will open each September.
