Since your child has expressed an interest in participating in our Discernment Mentorship Program, our team would like to offer you some information about the program and extend our gratitude for the example you have given your child. Their interest in this program indicates a clear love for the Lord and a desire to serve Him in their lives, as well as a maturity that is beyond that of many young people their age.

This program’s main focus is that of trying to help your son or daughter grow in their relationship with Christ and to help them better understand the nature of God’s call for their lives. The course is also designed to affirm the goodness of both married life and consecrated life, as both are wonderful vocations given by God. As such, we invite you to consider this as an exploratory program for your child, as it is meant to help them discern God’s will, and we can assure you this program will not in any way pressure your child to choose a certain vocation. Instead, it is simply meant to teach them about discernment in general and allow them to learn more about what a religious vocation is.

As an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, we are also very committed to the safety and protection of your child. Our policies that we have put in place to ensure this are included below. Please read both the “General Program Info” and “Child Protection Policies” pages prior to signing the permission form. If you have any questions about our policies, or about the program in general, please feel free to reach out to us. We would be happy to talk with you!
