Discern How God May Be Calling You

Our Vocation Houses are peaceful homes for practicing Catholics and those exploring the Catholic faith. Residents pray, eat, and work together in an atmosphere of faith, fellowship, peace, humility, and simplicity.

Residents fall into two categories:

 

1. Long-term residents who are either living or affiliated with the Rule of Life of the Confraternity of Penitents

 

2. Shorter term residents who may or may not be affiliated with the Confraternity, but who are discerning their next step, such as: 

+ Entering a Career

+ Continuing Education

+ Starting a Business

+ Contemplating Marriage

+ Exploring Single Life Vocations

+ Discerning a Religious Vocation or Diocesan Priesthood

+ Any Other Major Life Choice

It's difficult to hear God's voice through all the noise of today's world. Setting aside time to listen, while living in community with your brothers and sisters, may help you find out what's next. 

With over 20 former residents since its institution in 2010, the Vocation House program has given rise to 7 religious vocations, 4 marriages, and 3 single life vocations. Residents have also been able to discern further education, missionary work, or steps in their career.

I've been here for 5 months, and the experience has truly been a gift from God. The house has been a place without worldly distractions, helping me transition to religious life. I know I would not have been able to do this without Annunciation House.

 

The women in the house have become a family to me. We support each other spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. We rely on each other to keep the house running and communicate well with each other. I will never forget the friendships made here.
