Vocations

Do you hear the voice of God in your life, but are not sure where it is calling you?

 

Do you long to live a life of prayer and service?

 

Are you searching for a community where you can become fully yourself?

 

If you are asking yourself these questions, you might be called to religious life. To explore the possibility and experience the Benedictine way of life, contact Sister Belinda Monahan, Vocation Minister, at 773.338.7063 or vocation@osbchicago.org.

 

Let us prefer nothing whatever to Christ, and may He bring us all together to everlasting life.

-Rule of Benedict, Chapter 72

As monastic women we live in community, bringing that unity with God and one another to the world.

Our personal and communal prayer allows us to hear the voice of God in our lives and leads us to minister to the people of God.

Our lives together allows us to focus on questions of social justice and bringing the presence of God into the world.
