Dominican Nuns

Marbury, Alabama

Would you like to “come and see”? The normal way to make a vocation retreat at our monastery is to contact the Vocation Directress, share a bit about yourself and your discernment, and ask if it would be possible to come and make a discernment visit. An initial visit is usually for one to three days.
Occasionally we arrange official “Come and See” days or vocation retreats; these will be listed on our website. We also welcome Nun Runs — if you have a group and are interested in dropping by, contact us.
