Many young women working with the Dominican Sisters of Peace in discerning their vocation have shared that one of the most valuable resources they have found with us are our "Come and See" opportunities. These include discernment retreats, mission immersions, and "mini live-in" experiences. "Come and See" opportunities can provide discerners a chance to get to know our congregation's members and ministries on a deeper level and to find friendship and support with other young women traveling a similar journey. One young woman recently shared these words about a mini live-in experience:
"These past two weeks have been a tremendous blessing for me and have been of incomparable importance to my discernment path. Having this opportunity to visit with the Sisters in various areas and to see the ministries that they are involved in has given me a much fuller picture of the richness and variety of Dominican Life. Hearing their stories has been inspiring, and living and praying with them over these two weeks has provided a priceless taste of community life. Experiencing all this firsthand has made an impact on my discernment process more deeply and profoundly than merely hearing about such things ever could have. I am extremely grateful to have had this opportunity and will treasure the precious gift that this experience was for me."
