Texas 2023 Vocational Discernment Retreat

December 2, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - December 3, 2023 @ 3:00 pm

retreat 1 compressed

Winter December 2 – 3, 2023

The Sisters invite you to join them on a spiritual retreat that includes Holy Mass, Divine Office, Rosary and the opportunity to enjoy time with the Sisters at the Priory in Georgetown, TX.

 

During the retreat you will experience the community’s Dominican charism, deeply rooted in Eucharistic Adoration and Marian devotion. The retreat includes Holy Mass, Divine Office, the Rosary, and enjoying time with the Sisters. All-night Adoration is where our Eucharistic Lord speaks to your heart, helping guide you to listen to and respond to the call only He can reveal. This retreat will provide an opportunity to step out of your daily life and into the new graces of discernment that He has waiting for you.

Please note: This vocational discernment retreat is for young women 18 (out of high school) and 30 years old from all over Texas.


So what are the vocation retreats really like?

Why do so many young women, often numbering well over a hundred, come for a twenty-four hour retreat? What is it that attracts them from all parts of the United States and Canada? For each young woman, the answer is different and the experience unique.

The following are a few glimpses of the retreats in the words of the young women who have experienced the retreats themselves:

“…I have to say that your retreat was more intense than any retreat I’ve ever gone on….”

“…you and your sisters are such a blessing and amazing example of purity and beautiful femininity, I can’t tell you what a joy it is for me to see you!…”

“I just want to tell you how much fun I had on your retreat and that if I do have a vocation to be a Sister, I think I would be a Sister of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist…”


What to Bring:

  • Sleeping bag
  • Rosary
  • Small ($3-5) gift, wrapped in newspaper for a game at Recreation
  • The most important item: A wide open heart for Jesus and Mary to fill!

ARRIVE BY 2:00 P.M. ON THE SATURDAY OF THE RETREAT.

LEAVE AFTER LUNCH ON SUNDAY (AROUND 3:00 P.M.)
