Several times a year, we offer retreats for single young women. The retreats provide young women with an opportunity to spend time in prayer and to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our retreats offer opportunities for Holy Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, Confessions, Divine Office, silence, personal prayer, and sharing with others who seek to know and love God in a radical way.

Vocation Visits

Visiting a community is a helpful step as you discern your vocation.  For this reason, we offer opportunities throughout the year for young women who are interested in an informal weekend retreat experience.

Vocation visits offer young women who are drawn to our community an opportunity to enter more fully into our schedule of prayer, apostolate, and community.

When one feels deeply loved, one cannot participate in the mystery of Love, who gives Himself, by holding back and watching from afar. You must allow the flames that burn the sacrifice to catch fire in you. And to become love.
