“If you think an Ursuline is someone who hides inside the dark folds of a convent and habit, think again.”

“Some people’s work ends by 5 each day. Our work lives on for years.”

“If receiving a call was really obvious, why do you have so many questions?”

Simply check all statements that apply to you.

• Do you find your weekly ministry more life giving and energizing than your 40 hour work week?
• Do you hide your vocation literature under your bed or away in your closet?
• Do you feel called to give more or be more?
• Does the idea of becoming a sister, brother or priest keep coming back time and again?
• Does your relationship with God sustain you, enliven you, invigorate you in such a way that you want to share the Good News with others?
• Do you long for “MORE”?
• Do you have a sneaking suspicion that you are on the brink of a major life decision?
• Are you afraid to tell friends and family that you are thinking about a Church vocation?
• Do you feel a recurring tug in your heart to serve others more?

If you have checked three or more of the statements above, then you may have a vocation to religious life

  1. You may want to find a church in your community where your questions could be answered. Here is an Episcopal group that might e of help….Benedictine Spirituality

  2. I am 36 and unmarried. I attended a protestant seminary for my masters degree in counseling. I’m not sure where God wants me. I love what Mother Theresa did for her life and others. I don’t really understand why Mary or the saints are prayed to.. And that would be my hesitancy. I am not Catholic. However, I admire the service and sacrifice nuns make. The idea of community is also appealing. I’m not sure if I also want to escape the pressure of the world. So much seems upside down to me. I live in St. Louis.

  3. Find sisters in your area…get to know them….volunteer…then you will know if this is God’s wish for you

  4. I want to start now.
