Religious communities are working a two-day vocation tour, the novely named “Convent Camino” on Friday, Dec. 14, and Saturday, Dec. 15. Over 24 hours, interested women will explore how religious sisters live, pray and serve in St. Louis. The convent camino includes stops at the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, the School Sisters of Notre Dame among others. And many area sisters will participate.
The sisters appropriated the term from “Camino de Campostello” and adopted the social-networking and traveling aspects, and the journey of discovery and discernment. Interested women explore multiple communities instead of just one on an individual order’s come-and-see weekend.
With an event like this, you’ll get a bigger group, which is nice for the discerners. They can go around with other women kind of thinking like they’re thinking and build some relationships and support networks as well.
