Come and See Vocation Weekend
Explore your purpose in life as a single Catholic woman of faith while you learn what religious life is like through the shared experiences of our sisters. See how women explore a vocation as a nun.
DO YOU WISH TO JOIN WITH OTHERS WHO ARE SEEKING TO KNOW IF RELIGIOUS LIFE IS FOR THEM?
If you find yourself thinking about ways to deepen your personal relationship with God and wish you could combine your faith and work in a balanced fruitful life, you owe it to yourself to attend one of our Come and See Vocation Weekends to explore religious life.
I’m WAY too busy to take time to “reflect”…
As a college student or professional in the work force today, a single Catholic woman faces many demands on a daily basis. With little time to spare, it is difficult to find time for yourself. Time to reflect on how you are feeling about your life right now and how it fits in with your faith and your long term objectives
…but you deserve a break!
Knowing the challenges of a busy schedule, the Sisters of Bon Secours have created a weekend for you where you can slip back from your daily life and listen to your inner self and what God might be calling you to. To begin to explore the meaning and purpose of your life and of religious life- what it is and how it is lived…what it affords in good works and what it affords in friendships and support on life’s journey.
…and a chance to talk to those who have been in your shoes
Several of the vowed sisters of Bon Secours will join you in discussions and one-on-one meetings. Those currently in formation to become sisters will answer your questions. Everyone attending the weekend will come together at Mass and at meals. All of this plus some very important quiet time for you and some fun leisure time with others who have come to learn more.
Other women found the courage to explore…
“I am so very happy having met you this past weekend. It is hard for me to put into words the feelings I have experienced since attending the retreat. You and the other Sisters of Bon Secours provided a safe and warm environment for me to explore the possibilities of becoming a religious nun. The time away from home and work allowed me to really think about nothing else except that. I miss that. The distractions of home and work are starting to overshadow the weekend and I don’t want that to happen.” – Erin
“The entire weekend was excellent. There was lots of helpful, interesting, relevant information that was appreciated. I loved touring actual ministries. It was extremely helpful to meet sisters in various stages of the process of becoming a vowed sisters; sharing their experiences was great.” – Ann
