Hi - I'll be gradually moving my blogspot vocations blog to this location. It will be taking a while. Until then, please go to Traditional Women's Religious Orders, U.S.A. See you soon!
Well, I am getting nearer to having my main pages set up. Still very few communities transferred. That will change.
So, I need to start thinking of navigation tips. Refers to the Navigation Menu near top (gray drop down menu).
1. If you want to see an alphabetical list of communities, with summary of major features, go to the "Post Menu", chose "List and Summary". If you don't exactly remember the name of an Order, or just want to see what's available, this is handy.
2. If you are interested in a particular apostolate (mission), such as teaching or missions, go to the "Post Menu", and chose "by Apostolate" for the type of community you are looking for (Active, Contemplative, Cloistered). Not every choice may be available right now.
3. If you want to read everything I could find about a community, go to the "Post Menu", and chose the type of Order you are attracted to. There are ten to a page, and you can navigate by the "Age of Entrance" sidebar menu (great for belated vocations), or go directly from one you find on the "List and Summary" page. The title of each is a link.
An alphabetical menu will eventually get done and put on the sidebar, so you can quickly go the the post of your choice, without changing pages.
4. To find communities near where you live, go to "Location and Retreat Information". Chose a state(s). Also, retreat opportunities for Lay, Religious, Priests, and Seekers!
That's it for now. I'll try to refine all this, of course.
