The Diocese of Des Moines
Vocations begins Bella Vita
April 13, 2012
Written By: Anne Marie Cox

The diocesan Vocations Office has launched a new program geared toward young women discerning a vocation to religious life. The effort, called Bella Vita (which is Italian for "beautiful life") is patterned after the Andrew Dinners, held for young men discerning a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. Bella Vita's mission is to offer exposure to the religious life and religious vocation through the visible witness of religious sisters joyfully living out God's call in their own lives. The next event is Wednesday, April 18, at St. Theresa Parish in Des Moines beginning at 6 p.m. Young women in ninth grade or oder are invited to 30 minutes of adoration followed by dinner and fellowship. A short talk and Q&A discussion follows with one School Sister of Christ the King, from Lincoln, Neb. and two Handmaids of the Heart of Jesus, of New Ulm, Minn. There is no cost. Please RSVP to Save to


bella vita is a good programme which will promote vocations in the diocese.
