Yes, you are right. I see that the religious habit is a "must have" for you. I understand. I suspect that you perceive that the religious habit is a sign of the kind of spirituality which suits you best.

The "Catholic campus minister" at the college where I work is a CDP Sister out of San Antonio. If I had any druthers to go to Texas, I might be tempted to check them out. They seem fairly groovy. As it is, if I secure any extra money toward a plane ticket, I think I like to go check out the Dominican Sisters in San Jose and San Rafael (the latter being Sister Christer's congregation). On another note: Have you considered joining the Sister Bloggers webring? Check it out! You'd be most welcome, I'm sure!

She's already joined the ring! And is of course welcome :)

So, are you going to the discernment week? Looks like a great way to get to know the community. I checked out their website and they seem to do some good work and as Natty said seem fairly "groovy." If that's what one is looking for :)

I stayed with them for a week in January and had a blast! On the personality side, they seem the perfect fit. I missed them very much when I left them after the week. But on the spirituality side, I seem to seek something more. You see we still kinda keep in touch.
