This retreat is designed to be used at the parish or diocesan level for young ladies 17 to 25 years of age, who are wondering if God might be inviting them to serve Him and His Church as a Religious Sister. It is organized by Fiat Ministries, a local retreat coordinator, and is carried out with the assistance of Religious Sisters. The minimum number of retreatants is 20. It is a three day retreat that generally begins on a Friday evening and concludes on Sunday afternoon.

The Fiat Discernment Retreat was named after Mary’s joyful response to God’s will. This Retreat was created in order to provide young women with the opportunity to ask the Lord what He wills for their life.

“Religious women are among the most precious resources of our Catholic faith. It is imperative that we do whatever we can to help young women discern the movement of the Spirit in their lives. This Fiat Discernment Retreat gives them the  opportunity to become gifts given back to the Giver of all.”
