Vocations for Women

A woman who enters consecrated life chooses to deepen her baptismal commitment by taking vows which emphasize the values of prayer, loving service, and simple living in community with others.

Consecrated women serve the Church and community in many ways, including: youth ministry, homeless and hungry, battered women, education, healthcare, family life and parish pastoral ministry. Some Sisters are totally dedicated to the contemplative life.

The resources here in this website are to help a discerning woman discover the next steps in her journey.  May God bless you as you search for His holy will.

Una mujer que entra a la Vida Consagrada, elige  profundizar su compromiso bautismal tomando los votos que enfatizan  los valores de la oración, servicio caritativo y vida simple en comunidad con otras mujeres religiosas.

Las mujeres consagradas sirven a la Iglesia y a la comunidad de muchas maneras, incluyendo: ministerios para la juventud,  personas sin hogar y con hambre, y mujeres maltratadas; educación,  servicios de salud, la vida familiar y el ministerio pastoral de la parroquia. Algunas hermanas religiosas se dedican totalmente a la vida contemplativa.

Los recursos de esta página te ayudarán a descubrir los próximos pasos en tu camino de discernimiento. ¡Qué Dios te bendiga mientras tú buscas cuál es la voluntad de nuestro Señor en tu vida!
