"To What is God Calling Me?"

Many students and other members of the UD community are struggling with that very question and other related questions

~ How am I called to use my gifts?

~ How can I serve?

~ Is religious life or priesthood for me?

If you find yourself asking these questions and would like to meet other people in the same situation, you are not alone!
