The thought of taking a first step in exploring a religious vocation can be a very daunting one. Our new COME FOR A CUPPA initiative is designed to make that first step a little easier. Unlike a Cloister Day which lasts for a full day (10am -5pm), it consists in simply meeting with a sister for a short chat about your vocation journey and provides an opportunity to ask questions that might have occurred to you. The Internet is certainly a great resource for getting information about religious vocations. There is a lot of information on this site for example, but talking with someone who has already made the leap into religious life can also be very helpful.

Whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words.
Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
Pray then in this way:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
