Often the best way to begin discerning whether you are called to our way of life is to attend a “Come and See” Discernment Weekend at the Priory of St. Albert the Great in Oakland, California.

The weekend takes place in a “no-pressure” group setting with many other young men who are also considering the possibility of a Dominican vocation, perhaps for the first time. You will have a chance to see Dominican life first-hand, and to learn more about the Order through brief informational presentations by a number of priests and brothers.

Along with the opportunity to meet, socialize, and ask questions of the student and novice brothers in formation, guests also join the friars for the chanted Liturgy of the Hours, celebration of the Eucharist, and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

For more information, contact Fr. Stephen Maria Lopez, O.P., the Director of Vocations at: vocations@opwest.org or 510-658-8722
