Priestly Discernment Program
Could God be calling you to the priesthood?
Jesus is calling men to be shepherds after His own heart, men who are willing to be living images of Christ in the world. If you think God may be calling you to this sacred mission, then Franciscan University invites you to join the men in its Priestly Discernment Program as they respond to Jesus' invitation:
"Come, follow me."
Whether you're currently in high school, college or the professional world, Franciscan University's Priestly Discernment Program can help you discern and prepare for a vocation to the priesthood or religious life.
Because following Jesus involves the whole person our program emphasizes human, academic, spiritual, pastoral, and fraternal formation. You will receive an excellent Christ-centered education in a Spirit-filled environment intended to help you discern, protect and foster your vocation.
