A Free Progam Providing Resources for
Starting Vocation Discernment Groups
Catholic men need to pray about their lives, listen for God’s voice, and get serious about answering his call
The Melchizedek Project forms small discernment groups for young men as they discern a vocation to the Catholic priesthood. Most discernment groups are formed on college campuses, with others held at local parishes and Catholic high schools. Nearly all groups are led by a priest who provides spiritual guidance. Groups meet seven times per semester for about 90 minutes, discussing every aspect of priesthood and how to “diligently discern” one’s vocation.
Their handbook is To Save a Thousand Souls by Fr. Brett Brannen, the ultimate guide for discerning a vocation to the Catholic priesthood.
“I wanted to thank you for this great service. I am working with a number of men and women in discernment. The men have really eaten up your book, To Save a Thousand Souls, so I decided to start the discernment book club and also invite other men who have tossed around the idea of priesthood to me but are not quite ready to take any bigger steps. By the way, the guides are great!”
Fr. Joseph Minuth, Purdue University
