Vocation - Are You Hearing God's Call?

Listening, asking are first steps

by Sister Laura Zelten

Each vocation -- marriage, religious life, ordination, single life -- is a call to community, holiness of life and service to others. No vocation is better than another, but each has its own specific signs, qualities and skills. Discerning a vocation is the beginning of making a commitment.

I am in contact with women interested in religious life. I realize it is not easy to take the first step toward such a commitment. I invite you learn more about God's unique call for you and ask questions at any of the the upcoming events.

Be assured, our lives as religious women are made rich by God's love, the love of our Sisters and the love of those whom we serve.

Sister Elise Cholewinski and Sister Laura Zelten blog regularly about religious life at our Be and Do Together page. You can reach our Sisters through our Contact Us page
