Am I being Called to Religious Life?

“Come and See.” and “Listen with the Ear of your Heart.”

Be with the sisters as they begin their day with beautiful praises and worship each morning.
Follow them with some time in God’s creation or in the monastery working with their hands.
Explore your inner longings through prayerful contemplation and adoration in one of our three beautiful chapels. Listen as a presenter shares what drew them to religious life.
Discerning women will want to reflect on God’s Word in the lovely monastic surroundings.

“As we progress in this way of life and in faith, we shall run on the path of God’s commandments, our hearts overflowing with the inexpressible delight of love.”

(Rule of St. Benedict, Prologue 49)
