Thinking of religious life?

When I was in London last fall I agreed to co-facilitate an afternoon of reflection for women discerning religious life being held at our beautiful retreat house on the Jersey Shore. At the time it was in the distant future ... now it's just a month away!

I'm going to be meeting this week with the Dominican Sister that's co-facilitating with me to plan the afternoon. In the meantime, I thought some free publicity may be in order.

If you live in the New York, New Jersey or Pennsylvania area and have been thinking that maybe just possibly some day you might consider religious life, (and if you love the Ocean as much as I do), why not sign up? Stella Maris is really a beautiful spot by the sea!

Listening to the Spirit: "What will you do with your one and precious life?"

April 6, 2008 (Sunday)
1:30 pm to 5:30 pm

Fee: $20.00

Deep within each of us God's spirit nudges us toward something more. What is that "more" for you? Are you being called to vowed religious life as a Sister? Come to explore some options and ways to discern this call in your own life. The afternoon will includ presentations, quiet time and sharing.

Led by Kathleen Tuite, OP and Susan Francois, CSJP
