Discernment Weekend

Discernment Weekends are a unique experience for men feeling a call to the priesthood. Spending four days living at the seminary provides you with a first-hand opportunity to see what it’s like from the inside.

Attending a Discernment Weekend is perfect for anyone from the Archdiocese of Detroit (18 – 55 years old) who is discerning a vocation to the priesthood. These weekends provide you with more tools for proper discernment.

A large part of the Discernment Weekend focuses on the Aspects of Seminary Life and the Pillars of Formation (Spiritual, Human, Intellectual, and Pastoral). These four presentations are the foundation of the seminary formation program.

Typically, 10 – 20 people attend each Discernment Weekend. Please click here for a sample schedule. This will give you a better understanding of what occurs on the Discernment Weekend.

Please register below. Once we receive your registration, the Director of Priestly Vocations will contact you to discuss the Weekend and answer any questions. For more information, please call us at (313) 868-7040.
