Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Eucharist

Independence, MO

The Sisters host various discernment weekends every spring and fall.  Separate weekends are held for both high school girls, and for single women 18-40.  Discernment weekends provide opportunities to learn more about religious life as a Sister of St. Francis of the Holy Eucharist by experiencing communal prayer, Eucharistic Adoration, conferences, and time for visiting with individual Sisters.
Spiritual retreats led by the Sisters or a visiting priest are geared to deepening ones prayer life and opening ones heart to the will of God.
Emmaus weekends are also available.  These weekends provide opportunities for quiet reflection and vocational discernment while participating in community prayer, meals and simple duties.
