January “Come-and-See” Day: Recap (with Pics!)

A big thank you to everyone who gave their time, prayers, and resources for our January “Come-and-See” Day – it was amazing!  One attendee commented at the end of the day, “Thank you!  When I arrived, I had no clue what vocation God might be calling me to; now I have directions and helpful tools to continue my discernment.”

After Mass, Divine Office and breakfast, Father Michael Augustine Amabisco, O.P. gave the first talk on God’s Process, incorporating much of his own vocation story.  Then one of our student brothers, Brother Joseph Marie Dinh, O.P. gave a short reflection on discernment and the rich young man in the Gospel.  Our vocation directress Sister Joseph Marie, O.P. finished the morning with a talk on practical tools for discernment.

After lunch, attendees spent time with the community, hearing highlights from their vocation stories and asking questions about the life.  Then following a holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament, the novitiate sisters led a panel discussion on the four pillars of Dominican Life.  Finally, as the day began with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (and we had time for prayer and adoration in the middle), we ended the day with Vespers and Benediction.

Again, a big thank you to everyone for your prayers and support.  And please keep the young women who attended this “Come and See” Day in your prayers.  May God grant them peace and joy and they continue to discern His will for their lives!  Not currently discerning your vocation?  Single young women between the ages of 18-38 years are invited to come to our Janua Caeli Retreat Day.
