The Cloistered Dominican Nuns of the Perpetual Rosary invite single women under the age of 40 to get to know them online as well as in person. The nuns welcome young women considering a religious vocation to attend a Day of Discernment on Saturday, November 26 from 9:00am-4:30pm at their monastery at 1834 Lititz Pike in Lancaster, PA. In preparation for this day, the nuns also will be interviewed live on social media on Wednesday, November 17, starting at 7:00pm through the Facebook page of Lancaster-area author and lay Dominican Erin McCole Cupp.

During the interviews, viewers will have an opportunity to meet some of the nuns of the monastery ahead of time and learn about their special charism and prayer ministry. At the Day of Discernment, young women will have an opportunity to interact in person with this joy-filled community of cloistered nuns, take a closer look at what life is like living in a monastery, and experience the vitality of a vocation to lifelong intercessory prayer.

This event is free, but registration is required. To register or to receive more information about the Day of Discernment event, or to arrange another time to meet the nuns and discuss a possible vocation, please contact Sister Mary Veronica, OP, at 717-569-2104 or [email protected]. RSVP by November 22, 2016 to attend the Day of Discernment.
