Franciscan Sisters Minoress - Vocations "Come and See" November 2013

Franciscan Vocations Website

By the way, as I have been there before, should you wish to be provided with directions on how to get to the convent, then please feel free to email me: and ask! It isn't exactly the easiest of places to get to and I know a lot of people get lost going there! GB. :)

Do you feel God calling you to explore

 the meaning of a Franciscan Vocation?


We are a group of Franciscan Sisters and we meet once a month with young people to discern the call to religious life.

Vocation Discernment Afternoon
Date of  next meeting: Saturday 2 November 2013
Time: 2.00pm - 5.00pm  

If this is not a good time for you to come - let us know and we'll try to sort our another opportunity. 
Come and meet the Sisters at St Clare's and other young people exploring their future. The afternoon involves some input on Religious Life, time for Eucharistic adoration, opportunity for a one-to-one chat with Sr Marianne, evening prayer and tea with the community.

On-line Discernment To experience on-line discernment visit me on Facebook every Tuesday evening between 8-9pm for a live chat.  You will find me under 'Marianne Lucchesi' (link: If you send a friend request mention vocation so I know who you are!
Hoping to meet you.
We also have a Vocations Chat Group on Facebook:

Vocation Discernment Visits
You are welcome to visit us on our discernment afternoons if you are local, and women who live further away may visit overnight or come for a weekend.

Taster Weekends 
The sisters continue to welcome young women discerning their vocation to join them for taster weekends.
These are held for groups or individuals and give women a chance to experience something of the life of a Franciscan Minoress sister.
They also have the opportunity to spend some time talking with one of the sisters about how the Lord might be calling them.
 Keep an eye on this website for further details or visit our events pages on xt3 and on Facebook.
Do keep an eye on our vocations site or contact the sisters to enquire about attending
weekends or for more details on other forthcoming weekends

You can contact us about either event at the following email address for further details:
