Discernment Events

“Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening” (1 Samuel 3:10)

The Apostles offer a variety of discernment events for young women (ages 18–35) who are discerning a call to religious life and are interested in prayer, community, and/or service with our Sisters.

Open Hearts Digital Discernment Group

Join the Apostles and other discerning women on Zoom on the third Monday of each month (7:30 p.m. ET / 6:30 p.m. CT) for an hour to share on topics connected to discernment and the call to holiness. For more information, please email vocations@ascjus.org.

Come / Zoom and See

The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. And Jesus turned and saw them following, and said to them, “What do you seek?” They said to him, “Rabbi (which translated means Teacher), where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come, and you will see.” –John 1:38–39

Discerning women may want to spend a period of time with the sisters. They follow the community’s schedule and participate in their ministries. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Come and See experience has been adjusted to a Zoom and See format. Email vocations@ascjus.org for more information.


Acts of Apostles are events in which young women can offer service alongside the Apostles. In addition to serving with the sisters and living in community, there is an element of prayer and reflection each day. This is a week-long experience, with the option for ongoing service opportunities. Please visit our Acts of Apostles page to learn more.
