Vocation Events

                         

The Vocations Office offers several discernment weekends and days of recollection each year for men who are interested in the Capuchin way of life.  These events provide an opportunity to learn just what the Capuchins are all about and to meet other men who are also discerning God's call in their life. 

Throughout these weekends and days of recollection, there are many opportunities for private and communal prayer, reflection, and social gatherings, as well as presentations on discernment, religious life and the Capuchin Franciscan charism. 

The next discernment weekend will be held from Friday evening, December 1 through Sunday evening, December 3 at San Lorenzo Friary (15 Montebello Road, Jamaica Plain, MA)  

If you are interested in attending, please contact Fr. Marvin Bearis, O.F.M., Cap., Director of Vocation Ministry.  Fr. Marvin can be reached at 203-382-4513; or at frmarvinofmcap@gmail.com; or at Blessed Solanus Casey Residence, 123 Nancy Drive, Bridgeport, CT 06604.
