t is not unusual for a young man to ask himself, “What is it that God intends for me?” A Jesuit has the unique ability to surrender himself to God’s will and to answer his true calling, in prayerful discernment, within the Society of Jesus. For a Jesuit, a Vocation is his life’s work. More than any job, he may be in another country on mission, at a parish, in education, science, medicine, or even in the arts. The sky—or better yet the heavens—are the limit. If you believe that your call might be to The Greater Glory of God, we offer a program that can help you more fully explore your journey. If you’d like more information on how to join the Jesuits, please contact: Fr. James Prehn, SJ, Vocations Director 773-975-6363 | vocations@jesuits-chgdet.org

A job is not necessarily a vocation, but it may help you find yours
