Convent Visitis

Convent Visits (Nun Runs)

Visiting convents and experiencing the life of religious sisters is an important part of discerning. Our fall Nun Run drew a record crowd as 30 young women spent the day visiting the Sisters, Servants of the Lord and Virgin of Matará, the Little Sisters of the Poor, and the cloistered Dominicans at St. Dominic's Monastery. At each convent they prayed with the sisters, heard vocation stories and learned 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."

Our next Nun Run will be in Fall 2018.
