October 20-22 My Vocation Call: Discernment of Spirits Retreat

Are you a 20-something young woman discerning if God is calling you to religious life or to married life or to single life? Or seeking to follow His will more closely? Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity, Sr. Jacqueline Spaniola, is facilitates a silent retreat, October 20-22, based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

“I really enjoyed the structure of learning sessions followed by quiet times of prayer. I especially liked the materials, examples and conversations shared in presenting.” – Rebecca, Wisconsin

“There is no one right path to sainthood. Many vocations put you on the right path. Being able to talk with the Sisters, specifically with times of Spiritual direction with Sister Jackie, was helpful. – Anna, Michigan

The Spiritual Exercises are a timeless and always useful “exercise” to guide you in the spiritual life as you seek to do God’s will. Most free time will be spent in silence in order to pray and to ponder how God is working in your life. The retreat begins Friday, October 20, at 6 p.m., and ends after a noon meal on Sunday, October 22. The retreat is being held at the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity’s Motherhouse in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
