  • A DAY IN THE LIFE:   When the disciples heard Jesus talking, they where attracted by Him. They wanted to know where He lived so that they could stay with Him longer. Jesus said to  them: COME AND SEE. He didn’t organize an event for them, rather He simply invited them to be with Him and see His life (John 1:37-39). In the same spirit and in order to know more about us, we want to invite you to COME AND SEE – to visit the community or experience a day in the life of the AVI so you can see our ordinary life, how we live together, how we do apostolate. You will have the opportunity to sit down and talk with us, and more.


  • VOCATIONAL EXPERIENCES: These are geared to know more about us, our Charism, and the history of our community. These experiences are for any woman interested in discerning her call to religious life as an Apostle of the Interior Life. It will be more then a Day in the Life or a Come and See,  because it will extend for a longer period of time and the visiting woman will experience all four pillars of our Charism, visit in person with the sisters and begin her journey of discernment with us.


  •  IN RESIDENCE EXPERIENCE: These are week long experiences. You will be able to live in one of our communities and participate in our life. This opportunity is extended only after a specific journey of discernment with the vocation director an a pivotal step towards the application process.
