Well, Sister Pat said to “tell your friends.” So, it occurs to me my friends might not know that my community hosts some events for women discerning their call: “the plan God has for you.” And for my guy friends, the two events at the bottem of the list are open to you too! Contact Sr. Pat Farrell, OPfor more information.
