Fifteen religious sisters joined year 12 students at Carmel College recently for their annual “speed dating” event.

Carmel girls learn about religious life in a “speed dating” session with religious sisters.

In small groups, girls heard personal and moving stories of the vocation of individual sisters and learnt more about the OP, RSJ, RSM and SMSM charisms before moving to a different religious woman to hear another experience.
In this year of consecrated life this was a particularly valuable experience for the young women at Carmel College
as part of the religious education unit, Commitment and Ministry, and as they think about their own vocations.
The Synod on the Family that was continuing at this time of their study had also provided much food for thought for
the students as they examined the vocation of married life.
