The disciples asked Jesus, “Where do you live?” He said, “Come and see.” (John 1:38-39) Women interested in religious life often ask us, “What is life like as a Handmaid?” This question is best answered in the words of Jesus, “Come and See.”

During a “Come and See” discernment retreat, you come to our community house and see what religious life is like as a Handmaid. You will have the opportunity to meet and pray with Sisters and other women who are discerning their call, to learn about our mission, and to have some of your vocation questions answered. The retreat focuses on various themes – discernment, Handmaid charism and mission, daily life as a Sister, and the formation process.
