Behind the Veil
You are invited to participate in a virtual "nun-run" on Saturday, July 18th, hosted by Vocation Ministry!
Vocation Ministry is collaborating with the Diocese of Lansing Office of Vocations to give discerners and women interested an inside look into convent life! We have 6 incredible communities, each having 45 minutes to give you a behind the scenes look and then 10 minutes of Q & A.
Register online and then you will receive an email with the Zoom link and more information. Only those who are registered will be allowed into the Zoom event. It will NOT be a Facebook Live event. We know this will be amazing! Join us!
Do you know a young woman discerning religious life? Will you help us spread the word about this event by forwarding to others and sharing on social media?

Pray With Dreamers
Ask your U.S. Senator to Support S. 874, the Dream Act of 2019!
From November 2019 until Spring 2020, while the U.S. Supreme Court deliberates, it is vital that we encourage Congress to act to provide DACA recipients with a path to citizenship. As the House passed H.R. 6 which includes a path to citizenship for DACA recipients, we ask that you turn your attention to your Senators and urge them to stand in support of young adult immigrants by supporting legislative protection for DACA recipients generally and the Dream Act of 2019, S. 874, specifically.
