Annually during the Holy Week Triduum

Holy Week is the high point of the Catholic liturgical year, and is beautifully celebrated by the seminarians and faculty of St. Joseph Seminary at Dunwoodie. Each year we invite single Catholic men to join the celebration, both to deepen their faith and to listen more carefully for God's call to the priesthood.

Participants are guests from Thursday to Saturday night so that they can enter deeply into the celebration of the Triduum:

  • Holy Thursday Mass - celebrating the Institution of the Mass & the Priesthood
  • Good Friday - Solemnly observing the death of Our Lord
  • Easter Vigil - Celebrating with joy Christ's glorious Resurrection

During this three-day retreat, there are talks by priests, spiritual direction, and time for personal prayer.
