Convent Visitis

Convent Visits (Nun Runs)

Visiting convents and experiencing the life of religious sisters is an important part of discerning (and is nothing to be afraid of!). 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 Nun Run on Sunday, November 3 was filled to beyond capacity! The young women had very fruitful visits and prayer time with the IHM Sisters (Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary), the Servidoras (Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará) and the Sisters of Life. See 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."
