A six-month guide for Catholic women to discern religious life

180 DAYS

SIX-MONTH DISCERNMENT PLAN

Ready to get serious about discerning religious life? Discernment 180 is a six-month plan to open your heart to God’s call, whatever it may be. It’s available for free via our online platform that sends you a text a day for 180 days, each with short readings and spiritual practices. It’s also available as a book that you can purchase and take with you to the chapel or wherever you pray. The goal is to grow in holiness, prayerfully consider the priesthood, and peacefully accept the life God has prepared for you.

A Structured Plan to Discern Your Vocation

Discernment 180 consists of following a rule of life and completing specific discernment actions over the course of six months. The rule of life includes prayer, sacraments, virtue, service, and study. The specific discernment actions include a dating fast, spiritual direction, visiting a convent, and making a discernment retreat.

The result? Those who are faithful to the plan can humbly anticipate God’s grace leading them to deeper holiness and more clarity regarding God’s will for their life.

Grow in Holiness, Whatever Your Call

“In my journey of vocational discernment, D180 was a gift from the Lord and exactly what I needed. Establishing a rule of life was foundational to my spiritual health and will be something I continue to implement into my daily life. D180 provided a space for an intentional pursuit of Jesus in a new way and helped solidify my desire and understanding of religious life. I could not recommend it more. It has deeply blessed my heart.”

“With D180, Fr. Gerhart is guiding you down the path to your own heart, leading you in greater discipline, detachment, vulnerability and, ultimately, toward deeper intimacy with God so that you can hear Him calling you by name. You will be blessed if you take him up on this challenge.”
