National Shrine of
Saint Francis of Assisi


Gentlemen, do you wonder what it's like to serve God as a Capuchin Franciscan? The Western Province offers several "Come & See" weekends throughout the year, offering single Catholic men a chance to discern a possible Capuchin vocation. A vocation retreat is a great opportunity to meet Capuchin Franciscan priests and brothers, talk to some of our students in formation and see first hand what our life is like. These retreats are held at San Lorenzo Seminary in Santa Ynez, California and typically begin on a Friday at 5:00 PM and end by noon on the following Sunday.

The next Come & See weekends are scheduled for: December 13th-15th, 2019
