Young men invite God
to help them discern

Every month, a group gathers for prayer and to talk about
the possibility of priesthood

Sixth in a series on the Bishop's Appeal

By Fr. Tom Long
Director of Vocations

"Bishop had a beginning like any of us."

That realization, spoken by a man applying to become a seminarian for the Diocese of Green Bay, summarized the feeling of all 10 young men who gathered recently to talk with Bp. David Zubik about the priestly vocation.

The Catholic Men's Discernment Group meets the first Friday evening of each month at the Ecumenical Center at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Bp. Zubik visited the group March 3 to share his wisdom and answer some questions from the men who are seeking God's direction in their lives.
