Online Discernment Retreat for Women to be Offered

Sometimes a vocation comes as a quiet nudge that needs a boost.

Now there’s online help coming in Lent for women between the ages of 20-40 interested in exploring this nudge, according to Sr. Marilyn Kerber, SNDdeN, Archdiocesan Director of the Office of Religious.

She welcomes these women to consider making the Online Discernment Retreat sponsored by Communities of Women Religious in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and the Diocese of Covington. Those exploring a vocation can meet with a director via Skype, email or phone during Lent 2015.

Sr. Marilyn said she read about the online retreat developed by the

Federation of Charity Vocation Directors in E-Voc, an online newsletter by the Cincinnati Charities for 20-something and 30-something women.

Taken with the idea, Sr. Marilyn investigated the site. With the help of Sr. Ruth Lubber, SND, she was able to develop a more generic online retreat.

The Greater Cincinnati Area Vocation Ministers were very supportive of the idea and reviewed the work that Sr. Marilyn and Sr. Ruth had undertaken. To complete the package, the Vocation Ministers have supplied names of their spiritual directors who would be willing to facilitate a woman wishing to make this Online Retreat.

Sr. Marilyn said she hopes younger women, more comfortable with online activities and interactive media, would find this helpful in their efforts to discern a vocation.

To register or get more information contact Sr. Cathy Bauer, OSB; via text message 859-468-6040 or phone 859-331-6324.
