Come Follow Me

And I will make you fishers of men

Quo Vadis Days 2019

July 30 - August 1

Fearing persecution from the Roman emperor, an ancient tradition says that St. Peter decided to flee for his life. After leaving the walls of Rome, he encountered Jesus carrying his cross in the direction of the city. St. Peter asked Jesus, "Quo Vadis, Domine?" (Where are you going, Lord?) Jesus answered, "I am going to Rome to be crucified again." With that, St. Peter turned around and followed Jesus as he led him to Rome where he continued his apostolic ministry and faced his martyrdom with courage.

St. Peter was open to following where Jesus led him. Come discover where the Lord is leading you in your life during the Quo Vadis Days Vocation Camp. Open to all Catholic young men who are freshmen in high school to 25 years old, you will learn about the priesthood and how to discern your vocation. There will be priests, seminarians, and other young men like yourself gathered together in prayer, fellowship, recreation, and discussion to help you explore our Lord’s call in your life. The annual Quo Vadis Days Camp sponsored by the Office of Vocations will begin Tuesday, July 30 and conclude on Thursday August 1st at Sam Houston Jones State Park. There is no cost.
