Consider Roadside Chats Important

Paul Keggington

img_6836-1.jpgThe personal journey of trying to figure out God’s will often takes various twists and turns on the road of life. This is equally true for those who seek to companion others in the process of vocation discernment. For the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Vocation Team this takes on literal meaning as road trips are planned to make initial contact with young women who send on-line inquiry forms, call for more information or sign up for a weekend retreat.

  • Emy J’s in Stevens Point, WI
  • University of Wisconsin Stevens Point
  • Starbucks in West Bend, WI
  • Aroma Coffee Bar in Dubuque, IA
  • Loras College in Dubuque, IA
  • Perkins in Madison, WI

Also important to making an eventual discernment weekend a comfortable experience for all involved, are:

  • long (and short) distance phone conversations
  • facebook interactions
  • emails
  • blogging

If you know our Sisters, just recently found our website and like what you find here on Franciscanized World, we welcome you or someone you love thinking about religious life to our November Retreat Weekend. Not only will you meet some other wonderful retreatants, but we guarantee that you will learn much more about the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity.

The World Needs You. God Calls You. We Invite You.
