The adult live-in program at Mater Redemptoris House of Formation is designed for young women between the ages of 18 and 25, who desire to discern actively the call to the religious life. The primary goal of their stay at the House is to find God’s will for their lives; the activities and requirements reflect and facilitate this objective.
The program may last from one to four semesters, depending on the young woman’s situation. The young woman will participate each semester in one course of prayer, one of vocational discernment and one of human formation. The courses will be chosen for each individual in order to best meet her particular needs.
She lives in a convent setting and participates in the daily life of the Sisters as appropriate. Through this period, she gains an understanding of the religious life and, through daily prayer, comes to know God's will for her life.
