•  Click here for Come and See Information


    In our age information is abundant, but there is no substitution for a human interaction.  This is why a Come and See is important for anyone discerning vocation. The Sacred Heart Province hosts Come and See weekends four times a year at Bonaventure Hall in Loretto, PA.  

    During the weekend participants experience prayer and meals with the friars, and Franciscan fraternity-the heart of community life.  The retreat includes time to meet with others who are discerning, men in formation, and the formation team to discuss your own vocational journey.  Perhaps it's time for you to discern with the aid of a great experience.  In order to attend this retreat we ask that you have filled out a Getting Acquainted form and have been in contact with our Vocation Office.  For more information about the weekend and to receive the Getting Acquainted form contact Father Benedict, TOR at 814-419-8889 or vocations@franciscanstor.org
