Praised be Jesus Christ! A blessed Advent to you! 

As we journey with Mary this Advent season, we are reminded of the incredible journey that awaits us when we seek His will and listen with an attentive heart.

We invite you to join us on retreat! This sacred time of exploration and prayer is open to single women 18-30 years old. We look forward to walking with you as you discover the beauty of religious life, the gift of Carmelite Spirituality, and the freedom of opening your heart to the unique plan God has for your life. 

If you know of other single young women who might like to join us for either event, please forward this information to them as well!

More and more young men are seeking a profound relationship with Jesus Christ and are considering the possibility that they may be called by God to embrace a vocation to the diocesan priesthood.

“Vocation Awareness Weekend” is a retreat for men ages 17-35 who are seeking more information about the priesthood and seminary life. It is held on the grounds of St. John Vianney College Seminary in Miami twice a year (March & November) and consists of numerous workshops, liturgies, and social events with the seminarians.

Participants will have ample time to ask questions, gain an understanding of seminary life and prayerfully consider God's call to the diocesan priesthood.
