Priests – First-rate Vocation Promoters!

This summer is bringing us a number of visitors looking to discover just what it means to be a Passionist Nun. In June, we welcomed three young women – Rosa, Emily, and Jessica – for a very graced weekend Vocation Retreat.


All three of them were encouraged to contact our community by priests who have been to the monastery on retreats. We are so grateful for Fr. Vincent Ferrer Bagan, OP, Fr. Eugene Batungbacal, CSSR, and the Dominican Friars at Indiana University for helping to spread the word of our Passionist life, near and far!

In July, we were honored to be among the many stops of a cross-country Nun Run from Holy Family Parish in St. Paul, MN.

Mother John Mary’s NET Alumni friend, Bishop Andrew Cozzens, sent the Nun Run our way. Many thanks to Bishop Cozzens, and to the priests (Fr. Johnson and Fr. Tyson) and chaperones who brought these young women all the way to the “Holy Land” of Kentucky to see us

Thank God for our priests and all they do as His ministers!

Please join in our prayers that many young women will hear and respond to the call to follow the Lord as brides of Jesus Crucified.
