A Nun Run is a 24-hour + experience during which young women are invited to visit Religious Sisters where they live from the first evening until the next evening. We offer you transportation, overnight hospitality, meals, prayer and fun.
You will have the opportunity to pray with us, eat with us, share stories and laugh with us.
What a Nun Run is NOT:
It is not a running marathon! Rather, we carpool to each convent. Don’t worry, there won’t be nuns running after you. This is a “no-strings attached” event.

Jesus you call us to be your merciful presence in our world. Thank you for having so much confidence in us. Help us to be open to your grace as it pours into our hearts, our minds, and our lives each day. Breathe your own Holy Spirit into our minds and hearts as we discover how it is our lives will best allow your merciful presence to be shared. Give us the humble heart of your Mother Mary that we too, may be able to say "Yes" to your call. Amen
