Come and See Retreat Weekend 2011
Participants will be able to spend the weekend at the Fulton Sheen House of Formation, the IVE's Seminary in North America, and attend a number of talks on vocations given by priests of the IVE and Theodore Cardinal McCarrick
“Follow me and I will make you fishers of Men”
The Institute of the Incarnate Word is hosting its first Come-and-See weekend at the Fulton Sheen House of Formation in Chillum, MD from April 16th to April 17th. This is a wonderful opportunity for all men discerning a vocation to the religious priesthood to experience the seminary life.
Throughout the weekend there will be talks in both English and Spanish about the vocation to the priesthood, the religious vocation, and details concerning the charism of the IVE. Priests of the Institute will be available during the retreat for consultation and of course the seminarians will also be there.
The IVE’s good friend, Theodore Cardinal McCarrick will give one of the talks and will preside over the closing Mass at the end of the retreat.
If you are interested in attending please do not hesitate to email our vocations director, Fr. Mariano Vicchi at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and about any questions you may have.
Let us never turn down the Lord when he calls to us and may we be able to respond in the same manner that the prophet Samuel did when the Lord called him, “Speak Lord, your servant is listening.” (I Sam 3:10)
