Single Catholic women age 18 and older considering a vocation to religious life visited four Pittsburgh, Pa. area convents, including the Sisters of St. Francis Mount Alvernia convent in Millvale. This 24-hour introduction to the lives of women religious was held Friday, Nov. 8 through Saturday, Nov. 9.

The informal program hosted by the Pittsburgh Religious Vocation Council gave participants the opportunity to meet and talk with sisters, experience a taste of community life through prayer services, meals, a panel presentation and interacting with sisters. Visits were made to the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth in Pittsburgh, Sisters of St. Francis of the Providence of God in Whitehall, Sisters of St. Joseph in Baden and the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities in Millvale. Panelists also were available from the Sisters of the Divine Redeemer, Little Sisters of the Poor, Sisters of the Humility of Mary, and the School Sisters of St. Francis. For future Convent Crawl events, please contact Sister Marlene Kline, OSF or call 412.821.2200, ext. 430.
