You can learn a lot by just looking. So, without pressurizing yourself, browse, look, read, ponder.
In working with women who come to this House seeking to figure out the mystery of vocation, we use a spiritual exercise to help them begin to understand their own call. You can find the one-page document here.
You pray about your call, not yet about the community. What does it look like? What are you passionate about? What do you most deeply desire? That's the point of this exercise. Once you know yourself, matching the call to the charism of a particular congregation becomes much easier.
But no pressure - you're doing this on your own. Take your time; take a deep breath and know that God grants his grace to your efforts - and in peace.
