explore god’s call
The majority of men are called to build the Kingdom of God as good husbands and holy fathers of a family. There are also those select men Christ beckons to follow Him to give their entire selves to the Church in the gift of priesthood. Discernment of a priestly vocation does not just entail passive listening for the voice of God but requires concrete action – the will of God is not merely received but is sought.
If God has put the thought or desire of priesthood in your heart in any way, then you owe it to yourself to take a chance on God. Vocation, after all, exists for your joy and fulfillment. Take an adventure with other discerning young men, to escape from the routine and the familiar, so as to explore God’s call in your life. Sanctovagues aims to do just that by taking groups of young men into the wilderness in order to build a community of discernment, prayer and pilgrimage.
Rocky Mountains of Wyoming
June of 2019
Though it was in the middle of June the men of the 2019 expedition broke out their snow shoes as they backpacked and climbed the Wind River Mountain Range near the Continental Divide in Wyoming. Camping well past 10,000 feet led to some spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and some incredible places for prayer and reflection. Much peanut butter was consumed in the execution of this trip.

OF HOLY WANDERERS
“It was one of the best experiences of my life. I came back from Sanctovagues a completely different person and had a deep desire to live a simpler and holier life. This trip not only helped me in my vocation but it also gave me the opportunity to talk and listen to God without worldly distractions that can disconnect me from what is truly important in my life.”
“The Sanctovagues trip was a huge step in my personal discernment process. On this trip, the Lord invited me to ‘put out into the deep,’ to step out into the unknown – just as he invited St. Peter to do in Galilee all those years ago.“
“My experience with Sanctovagues has been one of deep merit and necessity. Through this adventure, I was provided a means of leaving behind a world of distraction and noise in exchange for another where the Creator’s beauty, Truth, and goodness spoke into my heart. This trip has been pivotal in my vocational discernment.“
