Did you know that everyone has a vocation? A vocation is simply a call from God on how best to utilize your gifts and talents in service among God’s people. If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about becoming a Sister of Providence, mark your calendars and plan to attend our Fall Discernment Weekend, in conjunction with The FEST, at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, on Oct. 16-18.
The process of discerning one’s vocation is anything but simple. It usually includes gathering information, talking to people, prayer and careful consideration in order to make a wise choice that will give you peace. And, you do have a choice. We are called to one of three basic vocations in life:
- Single life
- Married life
- Consecrated or religious life
Discernment is a process that takes time. The Sisters of Providence offer Discernment Weekends to help you along the journey. It’s important to remember that you are not alone – you have family, friends, mentors, other religious people and God to help you each step of the way.
If you are a Catholic woman age 18-42 who is considering religious life, why not plan to attend a Discernment Weekend with the Sisters of Providence? You will spend quality time getting to know Sisters of Providence. And, you’ll have time to talk with other women, many of whom have the same concerns and questions as you. You’ll take part in personal and group prayer and reflection, liturgy, and learn more about the charism of the Sisters of Providence.
There is no cost to attend the weekend.
Below are any “Discernment Weekends” currently available. Feel free to contact Sister Editha Ben, vocations director at 800-860-1840, ext. 2895 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
