"Jesus is a passionate lover who goes in search of persons who respond to his love. Let us give him the freedom to take possession of our heart."—Bl. James Alberione, Founder of the Daughters of St. Paul
Our vocational discernment retreats offer an experience of the life, mission, and spirituality of the Daughters of St. Paul. They provide a closer look at our life, along with time to reflect on your own journey, and to pray in the presence of Jesus, our Eucharistic Master.
These retreats are open to single Catholic women ages 18-30 who are seeking to learn more about a vocation to the religious life and to the Daughters of St. Paul.

Your dream, O Jesus my Master, is to lay hold of me, to change me with your divine life. Your dream is to fill me with your charity, to make me love the Father and all my brothers and sisters just as you do. Your dream is to bind me to you with the closest bonds, to bind our hearts together as one. Your dream is to make me strong, to impart to me your divine power so that I can overcome evil and be constant in doing good. Your dream is to enflame me with an untiring zeal to spread your kingdom in the world. Your dream is to possess me in this life and in the life to come. O Master, may your dream come true. May I be able to give all you ask of me.
