John 21 Discernment Group
St. Lawrence Parish, Tampa
John 21 is a discernment group for young men who are reflecting on God’s call in their lives and are considering the possibility of priesthood or religious life.  Just as the disciples gained clarity of their call while eating breakfast with the Lord, so too will we.  The group is open to anyone high school age and older.  All are welcome!

The group meets on Saturday morning at St. Lawrence Parish in Tampa (5225 N. Himes Avenue) beginning with Mass at 8:30 am in the Church.

Fr. Chuck Dornquast, Parochial Vicar, is the leader of this discernment group.  After Mass, the group will gather for breakfast and conversation, followed by Scripture reflection and question and answer session.

John 21 will start up again on September 22, 2018.

Please RSVP to Heidi Varley in the Office of Vocations (727) 345-3452 or
