Project Elizabeth Dinner for Young Women

Project ElizabethDinnerBishop David Ricken invites young women to share a dinner with him and religious sisters from our area and learn more about the vocation to consecrated religious life for women. This opportunity to listen and ask questions is for college-age young women, and older, willing to look at how God is calling them. Sisters from the Diocese are encouraged to invite young women, and to come with them!
