The Filippini Sisters are having a "Nun Run" from the 10th to the 13th. They have three spots left as of this morning. I love these Sisters dearly, I was taught by them from kindergarten through high school but I know I'm not called to be one of them. But they did plant a seed in me for my Vocation and they have a place in my heart.

St. Procopius Abbey in Lisle, IL is having a Come and See weekend soon. And they've developed a 15-question survey that may be of interest to discerners. There's no ranking of answers at the end or anything like that - I previewed the survey but didn't submit it. It might give some insights to those who are discerning.
