Desert Formation Experience

Follow seminarians on their month-long pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

by MOSAIC Editorial Team

Desert Formation Experience is the thirty-day spiritual pilgrimage first-year graduate seminarians make each year to the Holy Land. There they experience firsthand the places Christ walked and taught, suffered and died, while seeking his guidance in their own walk toward the priesthood. The seminarians keep a spiritual blog in which they share insights from each day of their journey. Follow their stories through at and please keep them in your prayers!
