By | Jan 22, 2009

Today’s discussion is centered on Vocation Directors.  I’ve heard some great stories about vocation directors, and I’ve heard some really horrible ones as well.  My own experience while I was discerning religous life was rather mixed.  I had some really great experiences, I had some not so great experiences.

The Rul of St […]

Video Monday: Poor Clares ~ Galway Ireland

By | Jan 19, 2009

This has to be one of the best Poor Clare videos I’ve found so far on YouTube. This 10 minute video was shot by a local news agency, and captures a very personal look at women who have entered there in the last decade. I highly recommend it to anyone who is discerning religious life. […]
