Discerning A Call to Priesthood, Ministry or Profession in Religious Life
The whole Church is called to holiness. So why would a woman or man join a religious community as sister, brother, or priest? Ultimately, the only reason to follow such a vocation is that God invites you. And all you need do is listen to God’s voice and respond with an open and generous heart. Is God calling you? Come spend some quiet time listening and responding to the voice of God. Come spend some quiet time responding, if the voice of God is an invitation to you to say “yes”.
