Cloistered Dominican Nuns Corpus Christi Monastery

Vocation Discernment Event

GOD IS CALLING YOU! A vocation – marriage, priesthood, religious life, etc. – is a call to love and every baptized person has one! But perhaps you’re feeling a tug to give your heart to Jesus exclusively, sitting at His feet like Mary Magdalene, or perhaps you’ve wondered what life is like as a cloistered nun?

If you’re a single, Catholic woman between the ages of 18-40 years, we invite you to spend a day of discernment with the nuns! Catch a glimpse of the same hidden life of love that has been lived at the heart of the Church and the Dominican Order since St. Dominic founded the first community of Dominican nuns in 1206.

For more information or to reserve your spot, contact Sister Joseph Marie, O.P., at vocations@nunsmenlo.org. Space is limited and fills fast!

 

Discernment Days 2016 3x5

“The form of contemplative life, which you received from the hands of St Dominic in the manner of the cloister, places you as living, vital members in the heart of the Mystical Body of the Lord, which is the Church; and just as the heart makes the blood circulate and keeps the whole body alive, so your hidden existence with Christ, where work and prayer alternate, helps to sustain the Church, the instrument of salvation for every person whom the Lord has redeemed with his Blood.”

-Pope Benedict XVI, Meeting with Dominican Cloistered Nuns at the Monastery of Santa Maria del Rosario
