Cannonball Club (Vocation)

Welcome to the Vocations website for De Smet Jesuit High School. Our vocations discernment group looks to live according to St. Ignatius’ standard of finding God in all things. In order to better live this standard, we have a group called the Cannonball Club that meets two times a month to discuss spirituality, how God might be calling us to live and pray together.

The Cannonball Club is named after the event of St. Ignatius’ life wherein he was injured in battle by a cannonball. This injury led to his first real spiritual experience, which led to him rejecting the life of luxury that he had adopted and instead choosing to live a life of service to God.

Please contact Mr. Wotawa, SJ, with any questions about vocations at
