Steps

The search for religious life with the Sisters of Sion passes through different stages as it is a growing into religious life. These stages diversify in their length of time. They can last from 6 months to two years.

In Regular meetings you contact one of our sisters. Either you know a sister personally or contact a community close to where you live. Start meeting her on a regular basis to share your call and allow yourself to be guided by this sister in your search for religious life.

These first regular meetings to get to know each other are followed by the first stage of living together in community. According to the gospel of John we call it “Come and See”. “Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?” They said, “Rabbi”, “where are you staying?” “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.” (John:1,38f ) It is a period where you live with a Sion community. You participate in community gatherings, prayer, life and work of our community.
