Sisters offer discernment opportunities

Women who are discerning a call to the religious life have two opportunities this month to visit communities in Fremont.

The Sisters of the Holy Family invite women to “Come & See” Discernment Day, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 14. During the event, which will be held at the motherhouse at 159 Washington Blvd., Fremont, the documentary “Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America” will be shown. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the Sisters of the Holy Family’s devotion to the service of the poor, especially children and families, and to meet and talk with some of the sisters. Participants will also have time for reflection.

To RSVP, dial 510-427-9137 or e-mail vocations@holyfamilysisters.org.

The Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose invite single, Catholic women between the ages of 18 and 40 who are interested in learning more about religious life to a weekend retreat Jan. 20-22 at their motherhouse, 43326 Mission Blvd., Fremont.
Questions and a RSVP maybe directed to vocations@msjdominicans.org or 510-933-6335.
