|CaThOLiC qUiZ! ....How much do you know about your faith?|
| My goal in making this site is to help those thinking about a religious vocation, or those who are just curious about the Catholic faith, find what they are looking for.
I have been thinking about a religious vocation for a long time, and truly believe that I am called to devote my life to God. I hope that this site will help to present different communites to those seeking information. Most of these sites are contemplative (cloistered) nuns, and some are just miscelaneous Catholic websites.
http://dsopr.home.mindspring.com ~Milwaukee, WI~ This is the website for the Dominican Sisters of the Perpetual Rosary who perpetually recite Our Lady's Rosary 24/7.
clarissenklooster/ ~ These are Poor Clare Nuns, although they do live in the Netherlands they give good information about the order.
dominicannuns.htm ~ Marbury, AL ~ This is an order of Dominican Nuns of Perpetual Adoration and Rosary. If you are looking for a contemplative order that is more traditional you should look into these sisters.
http://ettinger.net/carmelcov/ ~ Covington, LA These are Discalced Carmelite Nuns. Their website is very informative!
http://www.cistercianorder.org/ ~ Madison, WI This is a website devoted to an order of Cistercian Nuns. This order has a very strick rule, but you can truly admire these Nuns.
http://www.nashvilledominican.org~ Nashville, TN~ This is a teaching order who teach all over the U.S.
http://www.sistersoflife.org ~ Bronx, NY~ This order is dedicated to preserving the sanctity of life from the womb to the tomb.
|For those discerning a religious vocation I would recommed saying the Rosary. Our Mother made us 15 promises if we say the Rosary devoutly everyday. They are awsome. She actually said them! I would really recommend saying it. I guess that you could say that the Rosary saved me. When I say it I think about Jesus continually, when I don't I fall to temptation easier. I ask Our Lady to pray for all of you every night. Please ask her to pray for me. I also like to say that if you really believe that God is calling you don't hesitate to talk to a Sister. I wanted to talk to a Priest about what I felt like God was calling me to, but I was afraid to talk to him for some reason. So I prayed for strength. One day he came up to me and told me that he thought that I had a vocation to the religious life! He came to me! Praying is the key.|
