Come and See Retreat

One of the purposes of the IHM House of Formation is to offer retreats to young women discerning a religious vocation.  The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary were delighted to host in their new facilities twelve young women from Kansas and Oklahoma for a "Come and See" retreat from Friday, February 19 to Sunday, February 21, 2016.

Participants arrived Friday evening and joined the life of the Sisters.  Throughout the weekend, they prayed with the Sisters, ate with the Sisters, recreated with the Sisters and spoke with the Sisters.  It was the perfect opportunity to see how the Sisters live and pray.  On Sunday morning, they were able to witness the renewal of vows of one of the IHM Sisters, Sr. Rose Marie.

Several of the young women remarked that it was such a wonderful place to come and pray.  They had time to spend praying in the chapel as well as walking around outside.

The Sisters were so grateful to be able to provide this opportunity for these young women to get away from their busy schedules of school and work to take time to listen to the voice of Jesus speaking to them.
