Five men make a "Come and See" weekend

GroupOur province was blessed this weekend to host five young men for a Come and See weekend. The five gathered at Saint Anthony Friary in Cincinnati Friday afternoon. There they experienced our community life and learned about our formation process. The weekend ended with Sunday Eucharist.

The five attendees were (left to right) Sergio Fernandez, 20, from Tampa FL; Jonathan Beer, 18, from Hamilton OH; Pierce Gibson, 21, from Round Rock TX; Chris Wetzel, 24, from Dayton OH; and Andrew Farwick, 23, from Cincinnati OH

We thank these men for their generosity and faith and wish them God's blessings as they continue discerning his call in their lives.

I remember what it was like to take part in my come and see weekend as a prospective postulant not so long ago. I found it to be a real pleasure hosting these five men discerning their vocation to religious life this weekend. I will pray for all of them, that the Holy Spirit will guide them in the coming months. I hope to see them all again.
May the Lord give all of them Peace!!!

Peace and all good to the guys visted St. Anthony's this weekend. It was great getting to meet you all, hear your stories and answer your questions. You were all encouraging to me. I will be praying for you and for anyone out there also discerning God's will for their lives.
Take care.
