The Sisters of the Living Word, the Chicago Archdiocesan Vocation Association and the Sacred Heart Southern Missions will host “Hands On + Hearts In,” a discernment experience for women, six times in coming months. The events will be held in Holly Springs, Miss., on the following dates: Feb. 6-10, Feb. 20-24, May 15-19, May 22-26, Aug. 29 - Sept. 1 and Sept. 18-22. Accompanied by vocation ministers, participants will have a hands-on opportunity to assist those in need while discerning life as a woman religious. Attendees will live with sisters from various communities. Service projects will include tutoring children, assisting at a food pantry, cleaning homes for the elderly, repairing damaged homes and serving meals at a soup kitchen. The only costs to attend are travel to and from Mississippi. Applicants must book a spot one month prior to the start of an event.
