The [url="http://www.sisterservants.org"]Sister Servants of the Eternal Word[/url] don't have "Come & See" dates per se, but they are happy to have prospective vocations come visit them during one of their weekend retreats (schedule can be found [url="http://http://http://www.sisterservants.org/schedule.php"][url="http://www.sisterservants.org/schedule.php"]here[/url][/url] ) This works VERY well because the young woman will have complete one-on-one time with the Sisters, and, in my opinion, can get a better idea of their daily lives.

I highly recommend this community. I spent five years there, and they are a wonderful group of religious. If you have any questions about them or their way of life, please feel free to contact me!

Not surprisingly, I've never visted this Order (since I've never visited ANY order). But, they have an excellent Web site and have made a lot of use of the media. There is a very recent short video of one of their postulants inviting women to consider their Order. In fact, I think it's posted in this forum, in fact, if you scroll down a ways. There was also a recent interview of one of their postulants in their local media, and I think that interview is also posted in Vocation Station.

The Passionists wouldn't be my cup of tea, but the Whitesville Passionists seem to be a happy, growing community, and not as ascetic as the Ellisville Passionists.
