An annual three-day summer camp in southern Oregon gives young men a sense of where God is calling them. Camp organizers make sure the youths keep priesthood as one of the options. 

The 2014 camp runs June 23-26 at Camp Howard.

Quo Vadis Days was started by Msgr. John Cihak in 2000 as a response to Pope John Paul’s request for a “New Evangelization.”

“Quo Vadis” is the Latin phrase for “Where are you going?” Legend says that St. Peter asked Jesus this question on the outskirts of Rome.

“The Lord made you for a reason. He didn’t want this world to exist without you,” Msgr. Cihak said. “From the moment you were conceived, he has had a plan for your life. Quo Vadis Days is to help you discover that plan.”

Two priests of the Archdiocese of Portland, Fathers Theodore Lange and Ron Nelson, are running this year’s camp.

Registration is $160, and scholarships are available through the Knights of Columbus and Serra Club of Portland.

Register for the 2014 camp at www.qvdays.org.
