Information is always helpful, digitally, in print, or otherwise, but there is no substitute for a real human encounter. That’s why a Come and See Weekend is a must for anyone seriously discerning their vocation. Dominican Come and Sees are a sixty-four hour immersion experience into the very rhythm of religious life. It’s that “gut” experience which offers the visceral clarity that is the goal of discernment and the only true test of whether or not your home is here.
You will meet friars from twenty-three to well into their nineties, as well as a range of participants who like you ask the same questions. Between the shared experiences of the religious and those at your place in discernment, you cannot put a price on what you gain—a wealth of insight. Be one of the forty to fifty men who will take advantage of the opportunity this year. For our nine new novices, this weekend made the difference. You have a choice: you can either spend time in your head wondering what religious life is all about, or you can come and find out. Don’t miss out—it’s only the rest of your life we’re talking about.
Stay tuned, as we will eventually post a registration form for our upcoming event! If you have any further questions, please email Fr. Jude McPeak, O.P.
