We were sad to have to cancel the Women at a Crossroads residential program this summer because of the COVID 19 pandemic, but we are looking forward to offering one in 2021. If you are a woman who is at a crossroads in career, study, or lifestyle, consider applying for this 3 1/2-week program.

NEXT PROGRAM: July 3–26, 2021
DEADLINE TO APPLY: April 1, 2021

This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Jeremiah 6.16

Who Is The 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

Goals Of The Program

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.

Cost

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.
