How We Serve

Leonie’s Longing wants to help.

The most important purpose of this ministry is community for you.  It is not “common” to enter the convent, and neither is returning to the world.  It may not be a well-worn path, but you are certainly not the first.  You should never feel alone.  There are many women out there who have experienced this and can empathize with you.

The other main goal is to connect you with people and organizations in your area who can help.  If you are looking for a counselor, we may have recommendations.  If you need clothes, we can help you find them.

In general, we seek to help you meet your physical, emotional and spiritual needs through community resources, retreats and networking in new and creative ways.

We are always open to suggestions, so if you have an idea, please let us know!

Finally, you can help us identify the needs of people who have tried the religious life by taking our incredibly short survey.
