Quo Vadis 2019

We are very grateful to the amazing seminarians, priests, religious brothers and 115 young men who made Quo Vadis such a success this year!

About Quo Vadis Camp

Quo Vadis Camp is a great opportunity to explore your vocation, grow in prayer and friendship, and learn more about the priesthood and seminary life.

Quo Vadis Camp is five days and four nights at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary, growing in faith, prayer and friendship with other young men as well as the seminarians, priests and religious brothers who staff the camp. The mornings include Mass and talks, the afternoons are sports and recreation, and evening events are a mix of spiritual and fun. There is also a pilgrimage to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes.

The camp is for rising 9-12 graders.
