Have you ever thought about religious life?

You’re not the only one!

We are a group of ladies (18-35) that meet every month to talk about it.  Come to our meetings at the Newman Catholic Student Center (512 Normal Rd. in Dekalb) every SECOND Saturday of the month at 1:00 p.m.


We’re discussing the book “Discerning Religious Life” by Sr. Clare Matthiass.
