Diocese, Walsh University establish center for vocations

The Rev. George V. Murray, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown, is announcing the opening of the St. Andrew’s House of Vocation Discernment located on the campus of Walsh University in North Canton. Beginning with the 2012-2013 school year, this house, located in La Mennais Hall, will offer young men a place to discern their life’s vocational calling, with a strong inclination to the diocesan priesthood.

“We are excited to be working with Walsh University to be able to offer this place of discernment for men who want to seriously consider if God may be calling them to the priesthood, yet may not be ready to enter a seminary formation program,” Murry said.  “We are thankful to President Richard Jusseaume and the entire Walsh University community who have partnered with the Diocese to make the St. Andrew House a reality. There is no better place to begin this House than at Walsh University.”

The Diocese of Youngstown and Walsh University will host an open house from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 14. The open house will begin with a prayer service in the Our Lady of Perpetual Help University Chapel with the dedication and blessing of the House by Murry immediately following. This event is open to the public.

If you would like more information on this House of Vocation Discernment, contact Rev. Chris Luoni, director of vocations for the Diocese of Youngstown, at 330-744-8451 or email at cluoni@youngstowndiocese.org or visit Facebook at St. Andrew House of Discernment.
