FOR MEN – Quo Vadis Days

Quo Vadis translates to “Where are you going?”


Legend tells us that Saint Peter asked Jesus this question on the outskirts of Rome along the Appian Way. During that encounter Our Lord replied that He follows the will of the Father.  What is God the Father’s will for you? Where are you going?

If you are a young man between the ages 15 and 25 who is considering the priesthood or religious life, Quo Vadis Days is for you!  Join priests, seminarians and other young men like yourself  to gather together in prayer (Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Liturgy of the Hours, Rosary and more), games, bonfires, recreation and sports (hiking, capture the flag, volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, flag football) during this 5 day religious encounter.

Where:  Mount Saint Mary’s Seminary, Emmitsburg, MD

FOR WOMEN – Fiat Days

Fiat means “Yes” in Latin


In the spirit of the Annunciation, young women are being encouraged to learn to follow in the footsteps of Mary during this retreat. Prayer, presentations and small group discussions during this time of discernment. You will be challenged to continue growing in holiness and to consider your own “fiat”.

Young women between the ages of 15 and 25 who are contemplating a call to religious life will want to say “yes” to Fiat Days.  This retreat is a wonderful opportunity to meet sisters, hear their vocation stories and about their communities, attend Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, pray the Liturgy of the Hours and the Rosary, and even enjoy some recreation.
