Vocation Events

We sponsor a number of events across North America throughout the year ranging from discernment retreats for women considering life as a Felician Sister to retreats for men and women on college campuses.  

We invite you to learn more about our various events taking place throughout the year.


Come and See Weekends

Join us at a “Come and See Weekend” to learn more about living life as a Felician Sister and enjoy a weekend of hospitality, prayer, discussion, and discernment about life as a vowed religious. These weekends provide an opportunity for you to meet with women from across the continent who are also considering the Felician way of life as you learn about our life in community, our spirituality and prayer life, and how our Sisters are serving people in need across North America.

Discernment Retreats

Join with us for a Felician Discernment Weekend Retreat – a weekend specifically created for women discerning their vocation call. Take time to pray, reflect, and meet other women who are discerning a call to religious life as a Felician Sister. During the weekend retreat you can participate in daily Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, communal prayer, and discernment sessions while you learn about the Felician charism, Franciscan spirituality, and the Felician call to cooperate with Christ in the spiritual renewal of the world.
