San Antonio Vocation Retreat Report

By Fr. Paul Schloemer, OFM Conv.

Thirteen young men joined us from Friday through Sunday (February 22-24) to discern and learn at our annual Come and See weekend. Friar Andy Martinez led the weekend's activities, assisted by Friars Paul Schloemer, Bryan Hajovsky, and the students and Friars of San Damiano Friary in San Antonio, Texas.


Friar Tim Unser, OFM Conv., led discussions on discernment.

The weekend included group discussions on discernment (led by Friar Tim Unser) and formation (by Friar Martin Day), as well as visits to Posada Guadalupe (a safe house for young immigrants directed by Friar Phil Ley) and the campuses of Our Lady of the Lake and Oblate School of Theology.

A grateful thank you to the community at San Damiano, especially postulants Andrew Hennessy and Tony Martinez, and to all the Friars and friends who kept us in prayer this weekend. Your prayers were answered!
The next vocation discernment weekend will be at the retreat center at Mount St. Francis, Indiana, from April 12 to 14. For more information please call 800-424-9955 or email
