Discerning a Vocation
Over the past 175 years over 3,600 women have joined the Ohio Province of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur as vowed members. Thousands more have worked closely with us as Notre Dame Associates, dedicated co-workers and partners in mision. How might God be calling you to deepen your relationship with the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur? We offer this five part online discernment retreat as an opportunity to spend some time with God looking at that question. You may choose to work with the materials on your own. If you would like someone to companion you in the process, please email Sister Marilyn Kerber. She has a number of Sisters who are willing to serve as your spiritual guide via email, Skype, or phone.

Several Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur share their vocation stories reflecting on the following questions: How did I know that God was calling me to religious life? Was there something inside me inviting me to more? Were there events in my life that God was speaking through? Was there a person who indicated to me that she/he thought I might be called to religious life? What were your feelings, perhaps then and now?
