It can be a big challenge for a woman to discern religious life, especially if she has never had the opportunity to spend some time living in a convent. We are blessed in our Archdiocese to have a house of discernment for women who are finding themselves in this situation. Gratia Plena was founded to support vocations by providing a house for post college age women to live and grow in holiness, to deepen their Catholic faith, and to discern with greater clarity God’s call for their lives.
Gratia Plena, which is independent of, but works in conjunction with, the Archdiocese, is located next to Holy Trinity parish in Lenexa, KS. To find out more about Gratia Plena, please visit their website at http://www.gratiaplenaks.org/
