Samuel Group invites young adults ages 20-30 who seriously desire to discern God’s will for their lives. This seven-month journey provides the tools for how to discern properly with peace, joy, and confidence. Participants are called to discover whom and what they are truly made for, and how to embrace God’s call in every stage of life.

Samuel Groups accompany participants on this journey through:

• Engaging in daily prayer,
• Meeting monthly in a small group that focuses on an aspect of the spiritual life,
• And being in monthly spiritual direction.

Our hope is those in the Samuel Group will find holy community and vocation.


The commitment lasts seven months where the participant journeys with Jesus, the community, and their spiritual director in order to: know oneself, know Jesus, and to know one’s role in the Church and in the world.

Participants must be able to attend all seven sessions.
