Information about an Online Discernment Group

Purpose:  This Online Discernment Group would include young women who are discerning their vocation where they could meet each other virtually and discuss aspects of discernment and consecrated life.  Through other such groups, we have found that it is a great support to discerners to know they have peers who are also on a similar path of discovering God’s will in their lives. 

Who:  Discerners who have shown an interest in consecrated life.  They may belong to a college campus Newman Club, Catholic Campus Ministry group, and/or a parish where this question continues to arise in their heart and mind.  They don’t have to be present for every session but need to desire to attend most of them.  

How:   Once a month, we would meet via Zoom for 1 hour at a date/time convenient to the group and reflect together on one aspect of consecrated life.  Participants are asked to keep our discussions confidential.  Topics could include the following: discernment process, fears about following this call, differences among religious congregations, prayer, community life, ministry, etc.  Each session is planned and co-facilitated by a religious sister and a discerner who volunteers for this role.  About one week prior to the meeting, reflection materials and discussion questions are emailed out to the group.  The discerner and religious sister will work together to lead the discussion.    

What:   A book that may be helpful to use with this group is Discerning Religious Life by Sister Clare Matthiass (correct spelling).  We could reflect on approximately one chapter each month.

Leaders:  For this group, Sister Jean and Sister Liz would alternate co-facilitating with one of the discerners.  Sister Jean’s office has a Zoom account and could send out emails with necessary information.

Instructions on how to join the group will be emailed to the participant:
