Legion of Christ seminarians host “bus tour” discernment retreat for young men during Christmas season

lc hands up
The week-long retreat has two tracks: a "Test Your Call" track for those considering a vocation to the Legion, a "God's Plan for Your Soul" track for those who want a God's-eye view of their life.

Cheshire, Connecticut -- Are you “All-In” for spending some of the Christmas season in Cheshire, Connecticut?  The Legion of Christ seminarians want to know. They are inviting young men ages 15 and up who might be discerning a vocation, or just discerning their path in life, to come to their home in Cheshire for a week-long retreat December 27-January 2. 

Participants will climb aboard one of three buses on the “All-In” Tour traveling across the USA.  One bus will leave from Atlanta, Georgia, another from Chicago, Illinois, and finally one from Dallas, Texas.  (The Dallas bus will pass through the state of Louisiana on the way.)
Once at Cheshire, participants can choose one of two retreat “tracks,” including the “Test Your Call” (TYC) retreat for those who think God may be calling them to become a Legionary of Christ. The other is the “God’s Plan for Your Soul” (GPS) retreat for those who want to get a “God’s-eye” view of their life and discern God’s will for their particular path to attain happiness.

Fr. Justin Kielhorn, director of vocations for the Legion, stressed that the GPS track is a “wide open” retreat for all young men, no matter what God may be calling them to do.  Fr. Justin suggests the retreat would be appropriate for youth group ministers and vocation directors.  “They will come back from this retreat ready to evangelize other young men,” he said. 

“The All-In Tour is a bus ride you do not want to miss!” he said. “From the moment you get on, you could be swept up in a whirlwind of grace capable of changing your life forever.”

In addition to guided meditations and inspirational talks, participants will have the opportunity to attend confession, Eucharistic adoration and mission activities in Manhattan on New Year’s Eve.

The retreat cost is $200, covering the bus fare, food and lodging while at Cheshire. To reserve a spot, call Candy Nesbit at Elite Travel at 203-271-0623 or email her at   All registrations must be in no later than November 30, 2011.
