Come and See Discernment Retreat

Our “Come and See” retreats give you and other discerning women an opportunity to meet our sisters by joining us for prayer, meals, presentations, conversation, and fun. You will have the opportunity to spend time with one of the Dominican Sisters of Peace to talk about your own vocation or to ask questions about discernment and religious life. The retreat also includes time for quiet personal prayer and reflection.
