Come and See This Weekend

Come and See 
This Weekend

I’m doing final touches in preparation for this weekend’s Come and See!  The Sisters and I are excited and looking forward to meeting those of you who will be with us.  We have kept each one of you in our prayers! 

This is an exciting ‘new time’ in the history of religious life!  There is a growing desire among many Catholic adults to belong to something greater than themselves, building relationships within the context of a Catholic community; to know God at a deeper level through prayer; to open minds and hearts through study; and to serve where the need is great. 

The Four Charisms of Dominican Life:  Community, Prayer, Study and Service offer the perfect platform to fill this hunger.  The Women who will be with us for the Come and See Weekend will have an opportunity to experience the Dominican charism around:
· Community ~   We come together to give witness to Gospel values.  In community, we are continually shaped, supported, and challenged.
· Prayer ~ It is in our prayer that we celebrate the Word of God and allow ourselves to be formed and sent forth by that Word.
· Study ~ The Dominican emphasis on study opens our hearts and minds more fully to discover how God is revealed in the created world and in each other.
· Ministry ~ Our service is as diverse and creative as are the gifts and talents of our members.  New ventures as well as long-standing commitments give witness to a faithful ingenuity and creativity.

Here’s a preview of some of the things that are waiting for you:
