Who Will You Bring With You to Heaven?

Every young Catholic man should prayerfully consider the priesthood.

Discernment Retreat

“Come away by yourselves to pray and rest awhile” (Mk 6:30)
A retreat for Catholic men (high school juniors and older) who love Christ and the Church and want to explore the possibility of priesthood. Join Fr. Brett Brannen and seminarians of the diocese for a time of prayer, fraternity, and spiritual renewal in Savannah at the Wesley Gardens Retreat Center.


Discern the Priesthood Together 


Could God be calling you to be a priest?

Discernment is a process of drawing closer to Jesus, learning about the priesthood, and praying intensely about the Lord’s will for your life.

What Do Priests Do?

Priests do far more than celebrate Mass and pray all day. The life of a priest is busy, demanding, challenging—and incredibly rewarding.

Most priests live happy, fulfilling lives. They love the people they serve, and in turn, are loved by their parishioners.

Learn to Discern

God made you for a unique purpose. Even before you were born, he knew your vocation, your mission in life.

And if you are a faithful Catholic man, God may be calling you for a higher purpose—to become a Catholic priest.
