what we do

Since 2013, the Archdiocese of Baltimore has invited young men to join its priests and seminarians for a few summer days in order to ask substantial questions about what is most important in their lives. 


What is quo vadis?

Quo Vadis is a four day encounter for high school aged men hosted by the seminarians of the Archdiocese aimed at helping them to mature in their faith, deepen their desire for holiness and explore the particular vocation through which God is calling them to pursue holiness.

Quo Vadis doesn't just aim to recruit men to the priesthood.

Quo Vadis aims to encourage young men to respond with generosity in freedom to what God is calling them to do with their lives.

Who are these for?

Quo Vadis isn't just for young men who have considered a religious vocation.

Quo Vadis is for any young man who wants Christ and the Church to be a part of his life.  

All high school aged young men of the Archdiocese, from those entering 9th grade to those who have just graduated, are welcome to attend Quo Vadis. 

What should you expect?

At Quo Vadis you should expect a few days of talks, prayer, and friendship that will help each young man learn where they can find meaning in their life.

At Quo Vadis you should expect a few days spent with priests, seminarians, religious, and other young men from across the Archdiocese who are trying to follow Christ.

At Quo Vadis you should expect a few days of peace and relaxation away from the daily routine of school and family life to help each young person see the places where God is working in his life.

Every baptized person has a vocation to love as Jesus loved. When you were baptized, the love of Jesus came in your soul. And if we allow our faith to develop, that love gets stronger. Pretty soon, we’ll become aware that the Lord is calling us to a particular vocation, a particular way of loving and serving others.
