Take the Next Step!

Discerning is all about taking steps. Before the Lord ever told the disciples to “Go”, He first told them to “Come”. Doing God’s will involves stepping out of what’s comfortable and into what’s sacrificial. If you would like to know more about what it means to serve the Lord as a religious priest or brother of the Incarnate Word, then we invite you step out there and visit us at our seminary just outside Washington DC.
