Single Catholic women ages 18 to 40 are invited to participate in a local retreat that could help them determine if a religious vocation is for them. The 26-hour retreat, titled “Gulf Coast’s Got Sisters!” will be held Jan. 29 – 30 in Mobile, Ala. The retreat is free-of-charge, including lodging and meals.
The retreat is sponsored by the Sisters of the Mobile Archdiocese. “Women are invited to pray and share with Sisters from various religious communities in the Mobile area as they discern their vocations,” says Sister Theresa Sullivan, DC, vocation director for the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. “This weekend is a great opportunity to serve and be a part of community life, while asking questions about discernment and getting answers in real time.”
The Daughters of Charity established Providence Hospital in Mobile in 1855 and Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola in 1915.
