Options for Women

For women who are considering the choice of consecrated life, there are various options. The main and most well-known option is religious life i.e. to become a nun / sister. There are also different categories within this option, which you can read about here.

The other lesser known options are Secular Institutes, Consecrated Virginity and the different Societies of Apostolic Life – which all vary in charism, lifestyle, vows, attire and visibility.

Go through each section and read up on what seems relevant for you. The right fit will become clear through this process of search and discernment.
