Monastic Experience Weekend: 15-17 March, 2019
Experience monastic life for a weekend
We welcome women who are discerning God’s call to visit Glencairn Abbey for guidance. Our small guesthouse accommodates four people and can be booked for a number of days if you would like to experience monastic life here at close hand as you make your discernment. Monastic Experience Weekends are also a good way to be introduced to Cistercian life and how it is lived at Glencairn. Bring a friend if you like and experience the rhythm of monastic life with our balance of prayer, work, contemplation and community life. Meet a sister for spiritual direction. Take some quiet time in the Abbey Church in between our times of liturgical prayer and in nature for a prayerful encounter with God.
Who can participate?
This weekend is designed for single women who want to grow closer to God and discern God’s will in their lives. It takes place in this Cistercian monastery and community, led by our vocation director. The emphasis will be on learning to listen for God’s call to you in your life and to learn about Cistercian life at Glencairn. You can read more about Monastic Experience Weekends here on our website.
