Vocation Discernment Weekend for Women

Our next Discernment Weekend for Women will take place on Friday 30 September 6.00pm until 2.00pm Sunday 2 October 2016 at 216a Wingrove Rd, Fenham, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 9DD.


Do you want God as the centre of your life?

Are you seeking to live life in community?

Are you seeking to live in a new and more focused direction?

Do you have a spirit of generosity that compels you to give everything?

Are you a woman who wants to make a difference in our world?

Might God be inviting you to love and serve Him in Religious life?


The weekend offers an opportunity to explore apostolic religious life with the Sisters of the Society of the Sacred Heart.
