2019-2020 Dates Set for Weekend Exploration of Consecrated Religious Life
Springfield, Ill.— Women who want to explore religious life as a potential path toward a fulfilling life are welcome to join the Dominican Sisters of Springfield for any or all of four weekend opportunities to “Come and See” how God might be calling them to consecrated religious life.
“More and more, Catholic young women see consecrated life—the life of Catholic sisterhood—as an intriguing possibility,” said the congregation’s vocation director, Sister Denise Glazik. “The Come and See weekends are one way to experience and learn about our life of community, prayer, study, and preaching.”
2019-2020 Come and See weekends at Sacred Heart Convent, 1237 W. Monroe St., Springfield, IL 62704, for 2019-2020 are as follows:
- Jan 31-Feb. 2, 2020
- March 27-29, 2020
- May 29-31, 2020
The all-expense-paid weekends (exclusive of travel) begin at 7:00 p.m. on Friday and conclude at Noon on Sunday. They are open to all Catholic women age 18-35.
In November and January, participants have the option of joining the Springfield Dominican Associate Formation sessions, Sundays, 1:00-3:00 pm.
The November topic is Springfield Dominican History. In February participants will learn about three local Dominican ministries: the work of antiracism, Jubilee Farm Ecology and Spirituality Center, and Cor Unum, a collaborative ministry with and for young adult women.
