Discernment Group
This group is for young women (high school or college) who are discerning their vocation. They meet monthly to reflect on calls within Scripture and their own calling as well as the spiritual life and prayer. They also join the Sisters for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the Holy Rosary, personal prayer and Evening Prayer. Come and share with others on their journey of vocational discernment!
