Second Journey

The second half of life presents a new threshold of integrated experience. Raising children, marriage and friendships, careers and life accomplishments, and simply navigating a good length of life’s path have formed us in profound ways. Perhaps the next journey is a vocation in our Benedictine community that is serving over 20,000 people a year in a wide array of ministries.

How is God calling you now?

We invite you to explore the possibilities with us. We are holding “Second Journey” events and we could be coming your way! For more information call 208-962-5003 or email vocations@stgertrudes.org.
