Convent Visits (Nun Runs)
Visiting convents and experiencing the life of religious sisters is an important part of discerning. We normally go on a Saturday or Sunday in the fall, and visit 3 or 4 different orders. At each convent we pray with the sisters, hear vocation stories and learn about their daily lives and apostolic work.
A participant on one of our Nun Run had this to say: "It was such a wonderful day of prayer, joy, and witness to God's amazing love through the living vocations of each of the communities we visited. I loved hearing the conversations that sparked in between visits. I heard things like "If you were called to one of those communities, which one would you go to and why?" It's just so beautiful to hear conversation about a life so counter cultural and see that they recognize and understand the beauty in the various lifestyles/apostolates/missions God has called each of us to."
The next Nun Run will be held Fall 2017.
