A woman who enters consecrated life chooses to deepen her baptismal commitment by taking vows which emphasize the values of prayer, loving service and simple living in community with others. Consecrated women serve the church and community in many ways, including: youth ministry, the homeless and hungry, battered women, education, healthcare, family life and parish pastoral ministry. Some Sisters are totally dedicated to the contemplative life. The USCCB resources here are to help a discerning woman discover the next steps in her journey. May God bless you as you search for His holy will.
