Convent Visitis

Convent Visits (Nun Runs)

Visiting convents and experiencing the life of religious sisters is an important part of discerning. Every year we visit different convents where we pray with the sisters, hear vocation stories and learn about their daily lives and apostolic work. This year's event is Saturday, December 1, and we will visit the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales, the Daughters of St. Paul, and the Poor Clares.

Send in permission form and payment by November 21, 2018.

Last year's 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. See some photos here.

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."
