Are you a young, Christian woman interested in religious life? If you think you might be called to become a Sister, we would be happy to pray for you and with you as you discern your calling. Here is a message for you from our Vocations Director, Sister Teresa Marron, OP.
Contact Sister Teresa with your questions to learn more about religious life as a Dominican Sister of Springfield, Illinois. You may wish to read some of the Vocation Stories our Sisters have shared or visit some of the Vocations Links we have provided here. >
We are joyful women committed to preaching the Gospel through our lives lived in community, our personal and communal prayer, and our varied ministries. The model for our preaching is Jesus, whose mission is “to bring glad tidings to the poor, to proclaim liberty to captives, recovery of sight to the blind, and let the oppressed go free” (Luke 4:18).

The 3-Minute Retreat link below offers moments of quiet reflection.
“The Church needs your energies, your ideals, your enthusiasm to make the Gospel of Life penetrate the fabric of society, transforming people’s hearts and the structure of society to create a civilization of justice and love.”
In the 2,000-year history of the church, no one ever came to a vocation without someone to lead them to Christ.
If you’ve recognized yourself on one of these five paths, the next step is talking with a friend, a trusted spiritual guide, or a vocation minister. Trust the movement of God’s spirit within you and do not be afraid.
