This weekend men interested in the Seminary will be visiting us here at Conception from all over the the Midwest, including a group from our diocese. This event is called Encounter With God’s Call.
Last year I attended the Fall Encounter shortly after I began the application process. I had a wonderful experience which ended up serving as an affirmation of my decision to start applying and eventually, enter the seminary.
Fortunately, the Jeff City Seminarians will be quite involved at this year’s Encounter. Sophomore John Rockwell, from Immaculate Conception in Jefferson City will be one of the co-chairs of the entire weekend.
I will be giving a talk on part of my vocation story as it pertains to discernment and entering the seminary. I hope to post more information from that talk after it takes place this weekend.
Please pray for all those attending this weekend’s Encounter, especially those from the Jefferson City Diocese.
