Retreatant and Sister reading book

We do allow young girls and women who feel they may have a vocation to our way of life, to come and make a retreat within the enclosure. The retreatant lives in the Novitiate Dormitory and follows the novitiate schedule of prayer, study, work and recreation with the novitiate sisters. A letter of recommendation from a qualified person (Spiritual director, pastor, priest, religious — someone who knows the retreatant well enough to do this) is required before she is accepted to make a retreat.
