ARE YOU CONSIDERING A MONASTIC VOCATION? A vocation is who God has “called” us to be. All of the baptized possess the vocation of the universal call to holiness and service in the Church. The US Bishops’ Secretariat of Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations has recently promoted a new website about vocation resources. ForYourVocation. This website is dedicated to the promotion of vocations to the consecrated life of women.
Women who are practicing Catholics, free of debts, unmarried, who demonstrate a healthy psychological and religious balance may be considered as candidates for our life. For more detailed information and/or questions, let us know.
