Upcoming Discernment Events

Whether you are looking for a quiet, contemplative introduction to religious life or you would like to experience the joy of ministry first-hand, the Vocations Team of the Dominican Sisters of Peace would like to welcome you to one of our retreats. These events are free and are held at our Motherhouses, ministries, and convents around the country. Watch this page for more information about discernment events near you.

Come and See Retreats

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.

The next Come and See retreat will be September 13-15, 2020.  Check back again for more information in the near future, or click here to be added to our email list to receive event information and other vocation news. If you have any questions, please contact us.
