The disciples asked Jesus, “Where do you live?” He said, “Come and see.” (John 1:38-39) Women interested in religious life often ask us, “What is life like as a Dominican Sister of Peace?” This question is best answered in the words of Jesus, “Come and See.”
During a “Come and See” discernment retreat, you come to our Motherhouse or convent and see what religious life is like as a Dominican Sister of Peace. You will have the opportunity to meet and pray with Sisters and other women who are discerning their call, to learn about our mission, and to have some of your vocation questions answered. The retreat focuses on various themes – discernment, who the Dominicans are, daily life as a Sister, and the formation process. You will join with us to experience prayer, study, community and ministry, which are the four pillars, or graces, of Dominican spirituality.
We offer these retreats in the spring and the fall. Watch our calendar for the newest dates.
