The Center for Spiritual Development, supported by Bishop Timothy Freyer [auxiliary bishop of Diocese of Orange], is responding to the needs of women who feel a desire and a call to explore religious life. The center is offering a series of monthly education and reflection days on different aspects of religious life via Zoom. Those interested are invited to join with a group of women who are exploring and discerning where God is calling them. 

The eight-part series began in September and continues monthly through May, with December off. Topics covered include ministry and community life, prayer and the Eucharist, the vows of poverty, celibate chastity and obedience. Each session will begin at 10 a.m. with prayer and will conclude by noon. A booklet on each topic covered will be included for further study and reflection.
