Fall Discernment Retreat

Archbishop Timothy Broglio with prospective priest/chaplains in Baltimore, MD, on Oct. 2, 2022.

Twenty-six men discerning possible vocations as Catholic priests and U.S. Military chaplains came together in Baltimore over the weekend of Sept. 29-Oct. 2 for a discernment retreat aimed at helping them hear God’s call.

The AMS held the four-day retreat at St. Mary’s Seminary under the direction of the Vocations Office. Among the retreatants were three cadets from the U.S. Military Academy West Point and one from the Army’s Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) , a Marine, six sailors, five midshipmen, two airmen and eight civilians. AMS Vocations Director Father S. Matthew Gray directed the retreat. Archbishop Broglio participated, celebrating Holy Mass twice for those gathered.

Please pray for these men as they continue to discern if they are called by the Holy Spirit to be Catholic priests and military chaplains
