Are you wondering if God might be calling you to religious life?

Have you ever thought: "Is God calling me? I want to be of service to people. I want to grow in my relationship with God. Could this be God nudging me? If so, what do I do now?"

If this sounds familiar or rings a bell with you, why not check it out? There are hundreds of religious orders of women throughout the world! One way to do this is to go to Vision's Vision (a vocation magazine and website) has a vocation match that you can fill out. It then matches you with religious communities that fit your profile. This can be quite helpful.

If you would like to look at our community: the Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand, IN, I invite you to go to our website: and check us out. On our website, click on JOIN US and you'll find lots of vocation information, along with our vocation video, profiles of our newer members, and much more. You can even find out blog listed there.

We offer visiting or "Come and See" type weekends throughout the year, and a week-long event during the summer. This is a chance to get to know us, see how we live, what we do, how we pray, and to get to know other women who are also searching. If you're interested in learning more about us, call Sister Michelle or me, Sister Agnes Marie, at 1-800-738-9999 or email us at We'd be happy to talk with you and to assist you in your discernment.

This may be God nudging you. Who knows? Why not check it out? You may be pleasantly surprised.
