"Come and See"
These weekends of discernment (or longer up to one week) for college students 18 and older can be arranged according to personal schedule.

Private Retreat
During the Christmas/New Year Vacation we offer a private retreat opportunity for ages 18 and up for discernment during our Forty Hours Devotion.

These free vocation events include visits to our Holy Family Novitiate in which those discerning their vocation participate in community prayers, meals and recreation with the Novitiate sisters.  If you would like more information about any of these, please let us know and we will be happy to send it to you.
