Men’s Retreats

What types of Men’s Retreats do you offer?

Discernment Retreats and Advent Retreats.

Men’s Discernment retreats are for single men (ages 18 and older) who are interested in discerning God’s call to the Priesthood.  These retreats are focused on discernment, questions, vocation stories, and provide opportunities for prayer.  See below for the listing of our upcoming discernment retreats.

Men’s Advent retreats are an opportunity for single men (ages 18 and older) to prepare for the Lord’s coming at Christmas.  Our next Advent Retreat will be on December 17th.  This retreat will include time for prayer and preparation for the coming of our Lord.  While discernment is not the main focus of the retreat, it will be touched on as a part of preparing ourselves for the Lord’s coming.

What do you do on a Men’s Discernment Retreat?

A Men’s Discernment Retreat includes prayer, adoration and presentations.  Join priests and seminarians as they share their own experiences of answering the call to serve Christ and the Catholic Church.  Some retreats include Q&A or a reflection with Archbishop Aquila.

The retreat is an excellent opportunity to know more about the life of a priest and to learn how to discern if God is truly calling.  Additionally, it’s a great way to make new friends with others who are trying to understand their calling.

When are the next Men’s Retreats?


Join us for the next Men’s Retreat, Sunday, December 17th, 2017. The Retreats begin at 10 am and end at 5:00 pm.


Retreats are held at St. John Vianney Seminary (1300 South Steele St., Denver, 80210).

We encourage you to attend any or all Men’s Discernment retreats as topics and themes often carry from one retreat to the next.
