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.

The next discernment retreat weekend will be held March 12-14, 2021. Check back again for more information in the near future. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Mini-Retreats

These short retreats are offered online several times a year. Our next mini-retreat will be held February 28, 2021 during the Lenten season. We will pray together, focusing on the Stations of the Cross.
