Culture & Discernment
Come for a morning of reflection and a space to explore vocation in community. Open to single, Catholic women ages 18-45, curious about apostolic (ministry-based) religious life or actively in discernment (whether with a specific congregation or not, including those in a pre-novitiate stage). We welcome discerners from cultural, ethnic backgrounds not well-represented in U.S. religious life, as well as white discerners who want to reflect on the intersection of culture and discernment. We do this in a spirit of support, solidarity and inclusion. We’ll have a panel, time for personal reflection, and group conversation to help us to deepen our understanding of culture and discernment. Culture & Discernment flyer

This program is offered by sisters from seven different congregations who believe in the intercultural future of religious life, including Sister Chero Chuma CSJP who serves in the Archdiocese of Seattle and is the US Director of Vocations for the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace. We hope to create a sacred, encouraging space for discerners to connect with one another in a supportive community. You are not alone in the joys, hopes, anxieties, and questions!
