Excellent formation opportunities and resources are invaluable for those discerning vocations to religious life as well as those in search of ongoing formation. The Institute on Religious Life has many resources to offer out of its treasure trove from over the decades, from the Summer Vita Consecrata Institute for currently professed religious to articles, books, and audio courses.
Are you discerning a vocation? VocationSearch will help you discover detailed information about the 190 Catholic religious communities and apostolates that are IRL Affiliates. Filtering criteria allows you to select your specific interest area such as tradition (Dominican, Benedictine, etc.), apostolate, cloistered or active, and belated vocations. Discernment retreats listed by community, location and date can help you see if the Lord is calling you.
The mission of the IRL is to proclaim and explain to the world the true nature and essential value of Consecrated/Religious Life as a radical following of Jesus Christ and its vital importance for the welfare of the Church and the salvation of souls. Lay people are invited to support the mission of the IRL, participate in our National and Regional Meetings, and pray for vocations. We encourage religious communities to be part of the family by becoming an Affiliate Member.
