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 the Apostles. Please visit our event registration page to sign up.

Open Hearts Digital Discernment Group

Discernment Retreats

“Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest awhile” (Mark 6:31). Discernment retreats for young women will be offered several times a year in different places for either one day or for a weekend. The retreats will offer young women time for quiet and prayer. It will also provide an opportunity for dialogue with a team of sisters and other discerning women. For more information, please contact us by email.


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. The duration can range from one to five days. Please visit our Acts of Apostles page to learn more.

Come 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. Come and See experiences are dependent upon the needs and availability of each young woman and local communities. For more information, please contact us by email.
