Greetings all!

 

AVE MARIA!

 

Don't forget the "Come and See" Weekend from February 6-8 here at the Sisters of St. Rita, OSA, in Racine, Wisconsin!

 

We've already got women coming from all around the country, but there are still a few beds left!  If you're a woman from 20-50 years old interested in an active apostolate and a contemplative prayer life, then we'd love to meet you.  It will be a casual and informative weekend to hang with us Augustinian Sisters, do what we do, ask questions, and further your discernment.  There's no better way than to just call....and VISIT!

 

If you're outside this age range, call anyway...we've been known to make exceptions!

 

You'll find some more information on our website here:  http://www.sistersofstrita.org/news

 

And be sure to check out our Facebook page as well, here, https://www.facebook.com/sistersofstritaosa

 

If you want to call right away for information, just call Sr. Angelica at (262)639-1766, and she can fill you in on details.

 

We're praying for you in your discernment, and God willing, we hope you'll consider visiting!

 

In Christ,

Sr. Mary Brigid

Not an actual come and see weekend...but I would imagine this Open House could lead to a Come and See weekend down the road for interested women.  I suppose this might be for those who prefer to dip their toes before diving in.  Haha!

Sunday February 8th.  Open House.  2:00pm-5:00pm.  Vespers at 4:30pm

1. There's a small community of Poor Clares in Spokane. I don't know of any Come & See weekend there, but the Poor Clares (in general, not specifically this monastery) do have some history of accepting older vocations.

 

2. There's a monastery of Benedictine women in Lacey, Washington. It's a fairly small and older community, not far from St. Martin's Abbey. They've got a Vocation Discernment Weekend Feb 28 - March 1 2015, and another scheduled for September. http://www.stplacid.org/ If you click on their current newsletter, you'll see that they have a postulant and a novice, and they just recently accepted another postulant... who seems to be an older vocation.

 

3. There's a monastery of Benedictine women in Idaho - it's not Washington, but it's not too far from. http://www.stgertrudes.org/index.html

 

That's all for now.

Report about a recent Dominican Come and See, and information about the next one:

 

Another Come & See weekend has come and gone. This past weekend 22 men discerning God’s call in their lives gathered at St. Dominic Priory in St. Louis, MO to learn more about the life of a friar preacher.

 

The event kicked off at 5:00 PM on Friday, February 13th with vespers. Other activities included Holy Mass, Eucharistic adoration and benediction, a time for confessions, Liturgy of the Hours, meals, and lectures, a tour and presentation at Aquinas Institute of Theology  and recreation with the brothers. The Come & See closed this past Sunday after Mass and final talks from the brothers and next steps in their discernment.

 

The Come & See Weekend serves an important purpose of offering a personal experience for those going through the discernment stage of the vocations process by giving them a first-hand look into Dominican life as a friar. Men discerning find themselves in a “no pressure” group setting with others considering a Dominican vocation.

 

The Central Province USA Dominicans is hosting the next Come & See weekend March 6-8 at St. Dominic’s Priory in Denver, CO. For additional information about our Come & See weekend, contact Fr. Luke Barder at 303-455-3613 x107 or l.barder@stdominicdenver.org. Also feel free to contact the Vocation Director for the Central Province Dominicans USA, Fr. Andy McAlpin, at 312-243-0011 or vocations@opcentral.org.
