Vocation Retreat: June 3-5, 2016

Dominican Nuns Vocation Retreat June 3-5, 2016

Please share!  This summer we will again be holding a Vocation Retreat for young women interested in learning more about our community.  The retreat will be held the weekend of June 3-5, beginning 4:30 pm (Central) on Friday evening, and concluding at 11:00 am (Central) on Sunday morning.

Who may attend?

  • Single, practicing Catholic young women
  • Age 16 (or 15 if a current sophomore in high school) through age 27
  • Interested in learning more about a vocation to the contemplative Dominican life at Marbury

The retreatants say in the monastery guest quarters, outside the enclosure.  During the retreat, the young women hear talks on the religious vocation and the Dominican life by the nuns and by a Dominican friar, experience our life by joining in praying the Divine Office and our “Adoring Rosary,” and also have a chance to visit with the nuns and with each other.  There is also an opportunity for Confession, and time in silence for Eucharistic Adoration, private prayer and reflection.

Please help spread the word!

If you can share news of our Vocation Retreat on social media or by posting our Vocation Retreat flyers (PDF) at your parish or school, we would be very grateful.  We have received a very good response so far!  Please keep all the girls who will attend in your prayers.
