Come join other young women in high school in a day of discernment designed to help youth come to a deeper understanding of God’s call for their lives. The retreat is open to young women, ages 15-18. Female youth ministers are also welcome to attend and bring groups from their parishes. Participants will join religious sisters and consecrated women in prayer, fellowship, activities, and Mass. We encourage the families of our young women to help them throughout the retreat with their prayers until it is time for them to come home after a blessed time in retreat.

Prayer to Discern One’s Vocation
God of wisdom and of counsel, You see in my heart a sincere desire to please You alone and to conform myself entirely to Your holy Will in the choice of my state in life. Grant me, I humbly implore You, by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin, my Mother and my holy Patrons, the grace to know what state in life I should choose and to embrace it when known, in order that thus I may seek Your glory and increase it, work out my own salvation, and deserve the heavenly reward which You have promised to those who do Your holy Will. Amen.
Prayer for an Increase in Vocations
O Father, you desire all of us to be happy. Stir up the grace of a religious vocation in the hearts of many men and women. Grant to them the willingness and generosity to give of themselves, their lives, their time and their talents to the service of Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord and Savior, and to His Holy Church.
May more men and women go forth as priests, deacons, brothers and sisters to bring the truths of our Catholic faith to all others so that soon they, too, may know You better and love You more… and serving You, be truly happy. Amen.
