Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi” (which translated means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come, and you will see.” John 1: 38-39

This is just the advice the consecrated women of Regnum Christi would like to extend to any young women who might be considering a vocation, extending an invitation to a “Come and See” week in Cumming, Georgia from June 6-14, 2014.

“We have been getting requests from young women who want to know more about the vocation to consecrated life in Regnum Christi,” said Michelle Reiff, National Vocation Director for the Regnum Christi consecrated women.  “I think that the best way to learn more is to ‘come and see,’ exactly what Jesus told the first apostles when they asked him questions about his life.”

Michelle said participants will be spending a week with the consecrated women in the Atlanta, Georgia area, where they will pray, do apostolic work, and experience the day-to-day life of the community. 

“We hope to provide opportunities for them to live many of the different aspects of our consecrated life so they can see if God may be calling them to this vocation,” she said. “We will have in-depth explanations of our charism, the whole Regnum Christi spiritual family, the way we live the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, as well as giving them time for their own personal prayer and discernment.

“I think it is significant that the week begins just as we celebrate Pentecost, because we really need the Holy Spirit when we are discerning a vocation.  The call comes from God, so we need to listen very carefully to the Holy Spirit to be able to recognize and respond to that call.”
