DO YOU HEAR THE CALL TO BE A PREACHER?
We're Here To Help You Succeed
Take courage: Christ is calling you and the whole world awaits you! Remember that the Kingdom of God has need of your generous and total dedication. Do not be like the rich young man who, when invited by Christ, was unable to accept but remained with his possessions and sadness, even though Jesus had glanced at him with love. Be like the fishermen who, when they were called by Jesus, left everything promptly to become fishers of men.
– Pope John Paul II
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.
Much thought, prayer, and conversation precedes the inquirer seeking to apply for acceptance into the Order of Preachers. The Promoter of Vocations will need some basic information from a candidate, such as his age, whether or not he is still in school and whether he is interested in the cooperator brothers or priesthood. Over a period of several months, the interested candidate and the Promoter of Vocations will remain in regular contact. including scheduled visits with Dominicans of the Central Province, including a Come and See weekend in St. Louis.
