EAST FREETOWN — Where are you going? Tradition tells that St. Peter asked Jesus this question on the outskirts of Rome. We know where Jesus went in response to His Father’s will. Where are you going?

The Lord in His love has a great and wonderful plan for some young men in the area of the Fall River Diocese: to be one of His priests.

Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., met for a discussion with young men attending the annual Quo Vadis retreat in East Freetown, July 11, hosted by the diocesan Vocations Office. ((Diocesan Vocations Office photo)

With that in mind, the diocesan Vocation Office annually presents a retreat for young men ages 14-19.

The annual Quo Vadis retreat is a time of recreation, fellowship, prayer and discussion to help young men explore our Lord’s call. 

This year’s event took  place on July 11 in East Freetown.

Priests and seminarians of the diocese provide conferences, spiritual guidance and fraternity.

Activities include prayer (Holy Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Liturgy of the Hours, Rosary, etc.). sports, games, discussions and talks.
