“Come, follow me … and when you do, do not be afraid.” “If such a call comes into your heart, do not silence it. Let it develop into the maturity of a vocation!” — St. Pope John Paul II

The next Come and See Priesthood Discernment Retreat will be held Saturday, March 9 at St. John Catholic Center in Little Rock. Rooted in prayer and to include hiking, talks, discussion and Mass, this retreat aims to provide a living encounter with Christ to explore diocesan priesthood. It is open to single men ages 16 and older.
