Franciscan Sisters Offer Retreats Designed for Millennial Catholic Women

Industry: Religion

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite Millennial Catholic Women discerning their future to design “Your Own Special Discernment Retreat” just for themselves.

Green Bay, WI (PRUnderground) August 4th, 2019

Retreats can be scheduled anytime August through December at our Motherhouse on Silver Lake in Northeast Wisconsin.

“St. Francis sought sacred spaces to be with God, so we offer you solitude and silence balanced with meaningful conversations and practical guidance with our Sisters, opportunity for spiritual direction as well as service. A retreat can be an insightful and inspiring step forward in moving from discernment to action in following God’s will.” Said Vocation Directoress Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan, OSF

Other Discernment Opportunities through 2019 include:

Come and See Weekend, September 27-29 at Holy Family Convent Motherhouse in Manitowoc WI. Begins Friday evening with social and night prayer. Saturday includes:  Morning Liturgy of the Hours and Mass, Eucharistic Adoration and Motherhouse Heritage Tour, Pilgrimage to ministry sites, including Our Lady of Good Help Shrine,  Enlightening Q+A about religious life, candid conversations with Sisters who’ve served from Desert Missions to the South to the Upper Midwest. Also quiet time to pray and reflect in our 3 chapels. Concludes after Sunday dinner at 12:30 p.m.

Discernment of Spirits Retreat October 18-20 or November 15-17 at Holy Family Convent Motherhouse in Manitowoc WI. Franciscan Sister Jacqueline Spaniola draws on St. Ignatius’ discernment process to guide you in understanding God’s will for your life. Retreat begins with the evening meal on Friday at 5:30 p.m. Closes on Sunday at 12:30 p.m.

A Discernment of Spirits Retreats in St. Louis for young adult and young Catholic Professional women is also being planned.

Authentic questions about Franciscan Life and a calling as a consecrated religious are most welcome.
