House of Discernment

Have you or anyone you know considered a vocation in a religious order? Mary’s Children under the guidance of the Franciscan Friars and with the permission of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis is developing

A House of Discernment for young ladies.
During the discernment year, discerners will live in a house at the retreat center in a simplified form of community life. Each participant in the program will have their own bedroom, share a bathroom and living space with a House Director. The house has a Chapel for community prayer, private prayer and reflection. The daily structured life begins at 5:00 a.m. for prayer, and Holy Mass at 6:30 a.m. in the Chapel.

The women will participate in volunteer work at the retreat center from 9 until noon each day. After lunch they will have some free time, prayer time, and recreation time.

They will attend Vespers each day with the public in the chapel along with the Friars. Young ladies who have at least graduated from High School may apply.

Applications or additional information may be obtained by contacting:
Jim Wade at 812-825-4642 Ext-3 or Fr. Elias at 812-825-4742.

The Archdiocese of Indianapolis has given us permission to begin this House of Discernment. The Friars will provide spiritual direction and counsel to the discerners throughout the year that they are in the program.
