We do this.

The House of Formation actually does lead women and girls through all of these steps - we educate, distribute information, talk to people, offer retreats, take groups to visit...basically help in every way we can. Pursuing a religious vocation can be difficult, confusing, and a bit frightening. We work to unravel the tangled, explain the confusing and direct a bit.

Feel free to contact us.

Do it all over again.

Discernment takes time. If your original community does not "fit" that does not mean God does not call - it just means he's saying "keep looking."

We designed the search process outlined a few days back to give you an idea of the characteristics of your call. Look them over again. What kind of prayer draws you? To what work do you desire to give yourself? What structure best fits your call? All of these things contribute to your search for the place to which God is calling.

Don't give up. Keep looking - and be aware of the results of your searches. Why didn't Community A seem to fit? What happened when you talked to Sister Cunigunda? What direction does God point? Listen to your heart. Listen to your prayer.

And do it over and over again.
