Contemplate encompasses time focused on discerning a vocation, attending classes and interacting with current students. A campus tour takes place on Thursday afternoon followed by a welcome reception and dinner with current students and student leadership. Participants are paired with a student mentor who can discuss and answer questions from a student’s perspective. Sessions designed to give an overview of the formation for ministry take place after dinner.
Friday morning offers an opportunity to attend a Seminary class. Additional sessions on Friday focus on the spiritual and personal aspects of the decision-making process, as well as presentations on the academic program, Resident Field Education, vicarage or internship year, financial aid and housing. Further dialogue with students takes place later that evening during the student panel discussion.
The event concludes on Saturday morning with presentations on the admissions process, a tour of St. Louis sites, time to schedule individual appointments with admissions counselors and brunch.
