Come for a Cuppa


The thought of taking a first step in exploring a religious vocation can be a very daunting one. Our new COME FOR A CUPPA initiative is designed to make that first step a little easier. Unlike a Cloister Day which lasts for a full day (10am -5pm), it consists in simply meeting with a sister for a short chat about your vocation journey and provides an opportunity to ask questions that might have occurred to you. The Internet is certainly a great resource for getting information about religious vocations. There is a lot of information on this site for example, but talking with someone who has already made the leap into religious life can also be very helpful.

Place your mind before the mirror of eternity!
Place your soul in the brilliance of glory!
Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance
And transform your whole being into the image of the Godhead Itself
through contemplation!
So that you too may feel what His friends feel
as they taste the hidden sweetness
which God Himself has reserved from the
beginning for those who love Him'.
