I live and work at a retreat centre for young people and live in community with the team. One of the team members has been discerning her vocation to the religious life. She has a spiritual director, and has had some long discussions with our chaplain. I also admire the strength of her faith. Before Christmas, she attended a vocations group and is now talking about "when I make my first vows" as opposed to "if".
I think she is hoping to visit some communities to discover more about their way of life. I was just wondering if anyone has any advice about how to support her in this time and whether there is anything you would suggest she does?
