"This is our vocation...

" stand before the face of God."
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

Heavenly Father,
you renew the Church
in every age by
raising up religious women
to bear witness to you.

Fill the hearts of young women
with a spirit of courage and love,
and enliven in them
an awareness of their vocation
that they may hear your call.

May those you have
chosen to serve you
provide by their way of life
a convincing sign
of your kingdom
for the Church
and the whole world.

"If you feel called to a life of prayer
within the context of an enclosed life

  • have good physical and mental health
  • have a spirit of generosity and love that will enable you to give yourself totally to God
  • are between the ages of 21 - 45,"
