Discernment Program

Vocational Discernment Program
The CJC discernment program is open to any man 18 years and older who is serious about discerning a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. The discernment resident lives with the Priests and Brothers of Jesus Crucified and follows their way of life while receiving formation in the spiritual life. The program runs from September 1 - December 15 (fall semester), February 1 - May 15 (spring semester), and June 1 - August 15 (summer semester). The disernment resident can be a full-time student or hold full-time employment. He may also stay full-time with the community for the program, in such case he would perticipate in manual labor and apostolate during the day. The resident remains at CJC when not in studies or at work and follows the horarium and rule of life. A person can remain in the discernment program for a single semester, for two, or for up to one year. At that point or before he should have some clarity on what God dsires of him and should be prepared to pursue his specific vocation in the Church.
