Thinking about religious life but not sure where to begin? In this webinar with Sister Durstyne Farnan, OP, you will learn steps to take in order to begin formally discerning with a community.

You'll get information about where to start, what the general logistics are, and some helpful hints from someone who's been there and is now a Catholic sister. You'll also have the chance to connect with others who are interested in pursuing religious life!

After participating in this webinar you will know:

  • How to choose a community
  • How to contact a vocation director
  • Steps to entering the formal discernment process
  • How to talk to family and friends about becoming a sister or nun

After you register, you'll receive an email registration confirmation with a link to join the webinar on the day of the event. You'll also have an opportunity to make a free-will donation for the webinar -- and if you can kick in anything extra to help others who can't afford it, we'd be most grateful!
