Some questions to ponder as you listen:

  • Do I feel a call to a deeper faith life, a deeper relationship with God?
  • Do I desire to be a part of a community, committed to other women who are also seeking God in a common journey?
  • Do I sense a longing for a structured life of prayer, service, common worship?

If these questions resonate with you, it may be time to begin to listen for the call of religious life.
