How do I know I have a vocation?
You have the answer yourself. We can help you. We can accompany you in your vocation discernment. We will help you, by means of suitable instruments, to see the signs of a possible call. We guide you in making a well-founded decision.
How long does the experience last?

What happens with my studies, with my career, with my current situation?
You can continue the normal course of your life until you decide, with the light of the Lord, if you continue as before or change the path of your existence. Your studies or your current academic and professional career can be pushed through or you may continue later with a personalized accompaniment in the context of the mission of the Order.
What happens if I decide not to continue in the vocational discernment program?
You will have had a profound experience of Christian life, a greater knowledge of yourself, of the Order of Augustinian Recollects and their services. In addition, you have decided more clearly your own way.
