Find Your Vocation On-Line

We've all seen dating services where an online company is supposed to set you up with your soulmate. The funny and unexpected thing is that many do find the right person online. is a similar principle, according to Market Watch. gathers information from inquirers and then matches their profiles against the profiles of religious communities in its database. Inquirers are put in touch with the communities that best match their personal preferences and interests-in much the same way successful dating websites bring potentially compatible couples together. Prior to the launch of those who felt called to religious life were faced with the daunting task of sifting through hundreds of community listings. Keyword searches helped but still didn't offer insight to discerners on whether they would be more suited for the Benedictines or the Ursulines, the Jesuits or the Marists, for example.

Found here, I'll be interested if this works in the UK.
