See for photos, requirements, applications, and more information. 
The Confraternity Council has expanded its ministry to develop both a men’s and a women’s vocation discernment house, each operated in Franciscan faith and simplicity.
Each house will be open to those who are seeking a supportive, prayerful community environment in which to discern religious or other vocations while also volunteering in Catholic ministry for the Confraternity of Penitents.
In addition, each home will have a few rooms for CFP members and Affiliates who wish to live and pray together while assisting the CFP in ministry and mentoring those who are discerning.
In brief, the components and costs of this plan are:
Guadalupe Men’s Vocation and Discernment House ($120,000 to renovate, meet code)
Annunciation Women’s Vocation and Discernment House ($85,000 to renovate, meet code)
Confraternity Volunteer Coordinator’s House ($6,000 to upgrade)
Prayer Chapel for Mary's Glen ($65,000)
