Hello everybody! I'm curious-- can Sisters join orders in other cities? How do they find out what kinds of options there are all over the world? I read an article about a woman travelling all the way across the states to join Mother Theresa's order in, I believe, New York City. Can anyone enlighten me as to how to best get information on different orders and their charisms?
Thanks everybody for reading!
Take care, God bless
I sent you a private message with some links (as it was to lengthy to post here)
Yes men or woman do join orders outside of their own country... although many times international orders have houses of formation in more than one country, which means they may have some in Canada as well as other places...which would mean you might not have to travel outside of Canada to join... Remember to that if an order is international you may be posted in any place that order serves... so that is another consideration.. do you have ties to keep you in Canada or do you want to perhaps serve and live in another country???
Your director of vocations for your diocese will most likely have a directory available to help you to find orders within your country. They would also have some practical help for you in starting your vocational journey
As to finding out about orders and their charisms? I would Google some of the main orders to start with.... Many times they will give you some overviews of their way of life
this can be a starting point. When I began my vocational journey I had file folders full of information from various orders....
Here are a few links that may help...
