You may experience one, all, or none of these feelings – remember, God works within each of us individually, but effectively.

  • Do you yearn for a deeper relationship with God?
  • Do you enjoy talking about your faith, or sharing it with others?
  • Do you sense a voice inside – sometimes a whisper, sometimes a shout – nudging you to take a new direction in your life?
  • Are you happy and settled in your life, but still feel like something is missing?
  • Are you yearning to serve others, to serve God – be part of something bigger than yourself?
  • Are you drawn to a life of prayer, Eucharistic adoration, daily Mass, retreats, or other prayer forms?
  • Are you inspired by the witness of faith or ministry of a Sister?
  • Do you feel called to work with the poor or marginalized? Do you seek justice?
  • Do you feel called to care for Earth and God’s Creation?
  • Have you spent time with members of a religious community and felt the desire to be part of their community or their mission?
  • Has anyone ever asked you, “Have you thought about being a Sister?”
