Become a Jesuit

The UCS Vocations team will soon host two Discernment Retreats for men considering religious life in the Society of Jesus: 

December 17-21 at the Mercy Center in St. Louis and

January 2-6 at Holy Name Passionist Retreat Center in Houston.

There is no cost for the retreat. Participants are asked to cover the cost of travel to and from the event.

Each retreat begins at 4:00 p.m. on the first day and ends midday on the last.

During the evening of the first day and early on the second day there will be presentations about the Jesuits. The remainder will be a silent directed retreat.

If you are interested in an opportunity to learn more about Jesuit life and our mission, and if you can benefit from an opportunity to make a silent retreat considering a vocation, we invite you to join us.

To inquire, please contact our vocation promoters by emailing
