Exploration of Priestly Vocation
EPV fosters an environment of communal spiritual discernment and learning around the topic of the priestly calling for undergraduate seminarians. Local parish priests from multiple jurisdictions are invited for evening speaker-meetings to present their experiences and insights regarding the priesthood to the students. Additionally, students meet for regular lunch-discussions to explore topics related to the priesthood and the topic of vocation in general. The theme that we focused on this year was “Christ’s Teachings and Commandments.” During the spring semester we changed gears to tailor each individual meeting to the perceived needs and conditions of our small cohort of undergraduate seminarians. We took an amazing weekend pilgrimage to St. Tikhon’s Monastery in Taylor, PA.
