Totally love Him, Who gave Himself totally for your love. 

- St. Clare of Assisi

Your vocation, your God-given calling, is an incredible gift. Whether you believe that marriage is God’s design for your life, or if you feel drawn to investigate religious life – God is seeking you! He has a definite plan for your life, one that will ask for your own self-gift, but one that will ultimately fulfill you.

If you are pondering the question, is God calling me to give myself to Him?, do not be afraid. His grace will guide you as you seek to know His will. You are welcome to contact our vocation director if you are interested in more information on our community. Know that we will pray for you.

How do you know you have a vocation?

  A vocation to the religious life and in particular to contemplative life, is a special call. It cannot be explained, only accepted.

is-god-calling-me-olamnuns-200It is a silent voice whose urging creates within the soul a burning desire to know God, to be with God, to serve God and completely dedicate one's total self to God.

It is not something the soul decides.  It is an acceptance of a choice made by God.  It is a courageous gesture of love on the part of the soul and an outpouring of merciful love on the part of God.

  Men climb mountains, scale heights, venture into the unexplored to prove to other men it can be done. This is the witness of today's disciples -- they provide a needed witness that holiness is possible in today's world because there is one whose Indwelling Presence accomplishes the difficult, the impossible and the miraculous -- a change of life, ideals and goals.
