RELIGIOUS VOCATIONS for women and men

DISCERNING WOMEN

Women seeking information about living the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty, and obedience through the consecrated life (such as joining a religious community, sisters, nuns, or consecrated virgins and widows) should consider the different charisms that characterize each religious vocation or community. Through prayer, spiritual direction, and inquiring, one may begin the journey of discernment to hear God's voice and seek where God may be calling.

A woman who enters consecrated life chooses to deepen her baptismal commitment by taking vows which emphasize the values of prayer, loving service, and simple living in community with others. Consecrated women serve the Church and community in many ways, including: youth ministry, homeless and hungry, battered women, education, healthcare, family life, and parish pastoral ministry. Some Sisters are totally dedicated to the contemplative life. The resources here are to help a discerning woman discover the next steps in her journey. May God bless you as you search for His holy will.
