Discerning 20 Something Retreats: “…what I long for with all my heart”

Discerning-Consecrated-Life-with-Franciscan-Sisters

Discerning your calling? Considering a vocation decision? Peace and quiet is essential to discernment. Silence opens the door to prayer. Prayer opens the way to hearing God. If you feel called to turn off your cell phone and take time to hear God’s call…we invite you to leave behind constant noises and busyness to listen deeply to where God is calling you in your future. What is it that you long for with all your heart?
