Sisters who accept someone with disability?

Recommended Posts

I believe I have a religious vocation and want to find a community in the US that accepts me.  I take a low dose of psych meds and am very stable...do you know of a community of women that might accept me??? Thank you

Just contact and ask...

What are you looking for in a community?

When you search and contact communities, be upfront...ask your questions you have about them and include the fact of your own issue right away, asking if that is a problem for them.

That is what I did when I was looking at communities (since I have a vision impairment).

I'm not sure if this is permitted under the Phatmass rules, which only allow communities that have official Church approval to be discussed here.

Oh, I didn't realize that. I am sorry. I am new to this site. Could you tell me how to remove the post? I did not mean to be offensive.

Hi Kate, I've removed it for you. :) Don't worry. It's just a Phatmass rule that only communities that are supported by their bishop are promoted here, to help discerners figure out what is recognised by the Church. New foundations are fine - we just need to see some proof of diocesan support. God bless.

The religious community who will most likely consider you is the Religious Sisters of Mercy Alma in Michigan http://www.rsmofalma.org/contact/contact.html
