Catholic women 18-35 are welcome to explore their life’s mission with the Dominican Sisters during the next “Come and See” weekend, Jan 31-Feb. 2, 2020, at Sacred Heart Convent, 1237 W. Monroe St., Springfield, IL 62704.
The all-expense-paid weekend (exclusive of travel) begins 7:00 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31 and concludes at Noon Sunday, Feb. 2. It is meant to assist young women with discernment about how God may be calling them to spend their lives.
“We all have a purpose in life,” says Sister Denise Glazik, OP, the Dominican Sisters’ vocation direction. “Discovering what that could be is one of the most important journeys anyone undertakes. Our Come and See weekends are meant to help support young women on that path of discovery.”
If participants have the time, they are welcome to participate in “Uncovering the Light of the Gospel,” a separate program that looks at three of the sisters’ most exciting ministries. This is scheduled for 1:00-3:30 p.m., Feb. 2. Register here, or contact Sister Denise Glazik, OP, vocation director, at 217-787-0481 x. 6021.
Additional Come and See weekends are scheduled for March 27-29 and May 29-31. Registration for these events is also open now.
