The Byzantine Catholic Seminary of Saints Cyril and Methodius is pleased to host the “Come and See” Weekend of Discovery on Friday, November 6, and Saturday, November 7, 2020. This year’s retreat will be given virtually online.
Invited to register for this online retreat are men, ages 18 to 35, single or married, who may be considering a vocation to the priesthood in the Byzantine Catholic Church. In the interests of facilitating the necessary disconnection from the world, this year’s challenge of a virtual weekend includes creating as much as possible an atmosphere that is prayerful, positive, and fraternal. A selection of pre-recorded talks introducing the Seminary formation program will be offered as well as a recorded witness talk with the seminarians. A panel discussion will be live-streamed along with at least one liturgical service.
One of last year’s participants summed up his experience, saying: “Discerning God’s Will is important for me; I have been personally praying in front of my icon corner at home and at the Divine Liturgy asking for a clearer understanding of God’s Will for me for a long time and, attending this weekend, was a significant part of my continued discernment.”
There is no tuition for this “Come and See” Retreat of Discovery. The application deadline is October 28, 2020. To register, please visit the Seminary website at www.bcs.edu or go to: https://www.bcs.edu/2020/09/03/come-and-see-virtual-retreat-of-discovery/
