Vocation Brisbane’s recent Quo Vadis Weekend gathered eleven young men to discern and reflect on the call to priesthood. Held on the 28th to the 30th of August at Holy Spirit Seminary, the men were immersed into different aspects of priestly life and formation by Vocations Director Fr Morgan Batt and the Vocation Brisbane team. The weekend involved an introduction to praying the Divine Office, a session on sexuality and celibacy presented by Real Talk ministries, interaction with the seminary community and one-to-one vocational direction. Quo Vadis follows the four areas of priestly formation: human, academic, spiritual and pastoral. The participants ranged between 16-25 years old, with some joining the weekend from NET teams, others from parishes and some from Canali House. Based on their feedback many of the participants came away from the weekend with a deeper understanding of priesthood and a deeper sense of their own calling.
