After being fully professed by making the Definitive Promise in the Order, a member may choose to discern whether he/she is being called to make a vow. What is a vow? How does a vow differ from a promise? What kind of vow can one make? How is a soul prepared for making the vow? What is involved? Who is eligible and what time frame is involved? Most importantly, why would a member want to make the vow? These are some of the questions that will be addressed by Colleen Sollinger, a member and the current Director of Formation for the community of the Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites in Dayton. Even if you are not in the Order, by hearing this presentation, you may come to appreciate in a deeper way, the commitment others make by the vows.
