Monastic Experience Weekend: 26-28 October, 2018
Experience monastic life for a weekend
We warmly welcome women who are discerning God’s call to visit Glencairn Abbey for guidance. Monastic Experience Weekends are also one way to be introduced to Cistercian life, what it means and how we live it. 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 one-to-one for spiritual direction. Take some quiet time in the Abbey Church 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 the ambiance of this Cistercian monastery and community. The emphasis will be on learning to listen for God’s call to you in your life, be it God’s call to religious life, marriage or the single life as a Christian. You will have an opportunity to learn about spiritual discernment in the Christian tradition. You can read more about Monastic Experience Weekends here on our website.
