More Vocation Visits to Come

The Vocation Visit to St. Emma Monastery provided a model for future visits. The House of Formation will be sponsoring a vocation visit to two Carmelite foundations in late July and to two Franciscan foundations in the Fall. As soon as we have the  details settled, there will be registration information posted on this site.

The purpose is immersion and education. Young women have so few opportunities to learn about religious life - particularly the glorious diversity of foundations. The Lord of all raised up a variety of congregations, monasteries, orders, to meet the needs of the Church throughout the ages. Most of them still play a role, small or large, in the Church today. As time goes on, we hope to show forth the beauty arrayed in the many foundations and families of religious.

Stay tuned...
