Summer Discernment Program

Are you discerning Religious Life? Do you enjoy working with youth? Would you like to experience Salesian  Spirituality?  If so, our summer discernment program might be right for you.  Discerners live in community, participate in our prayer life and volunteer side by side with us at summer camp. Daily formative moments offer discerners the opportunity to deepen their personal journey and learn about Salesian Spirituality. We invite you to experience religious life and volunteer with us as we celebrate youth and build the future!
