Come & See Programs (for young women ages 18-30) can be a couple of hours in an afternoon, a full day, or a weekend. They can be held at any of our convents throughout the USA and Canada. Some are carefully structured so that participants experience for themselves various aspects of the life of a Daughter of St. Paul, including times of prayer, our Pauline mission, and community time spent together. For a less formal experience, you may be invited to:
- Volunteer with us
- Join us for evening prayer and supper
- Come for an hour of adoration and pray with us
- Attend our local events and concerts
- Arrange to make an individual visit with the vocational director
Our Fall 2022 Come and See Programs are posted now!
If you are interested in visiting, contact us! We would love to hear from you and help you to take the next step in your discernment journey.
