Women at a Crossroads

July 7-July 30, 2024

Due to the Guest House Renovations, Women at a Crossroads will not be offered for 2024.

Who is this Program For?

For women who are intentionally committed to seeking God’s guidance in living out their baptismal call:

  • in business or professional careers
  • in homemaking
  • in lay careers in the church
  • in volunteer work
  • in missions at home & abroad
  • in ordained ministry
  • in monastic life
  • in the many other ways in which we may serve God


The program helps women discern where God may be calling them, through:

  • Engaging in classes and discussions about Christian life and vocation.
  • Receiving personal guidance in deepening their prayer life.
  • Sharing the life of a Christian community committed to a balanced life of prayer, service, study, rest, and recreation.


There is no charge for room and board, but participants contribute to the life of the community by sharing in the Sisters’ work. A tax-deductible donation may be made to the Sisterhood but is not required.

To benefit most fully from the program, participants should commit to staying for the full three and a half weeks.

In choosing participants, we strive for a balance of backgrounds and experience necessary for effective group interaction and community building.
