Monastic Experience Weekend 22-24 October, 2021
Experience monastic life for a weekend
We welcome women who are discerning God’s call to visit Glencairn Abbey for a weekend who want to find out more about Cistercian life at Glencairn and meet others who are also considering monastic life.
Monastic Experience Weekends are an ideal way to be introduced to Cistercian life and how it is lived at Glencairn. Meet the community and experience the rhythm of monastic life with our balance of prayer, work, and contemplation. Meet a sister for vocation guidance. Take some quiet time in the Abbey Church and in the beauty of nature here in the Blackwater Valley for a prayerful encounter with God.
Who can participate?
This weekend is designed for single women who are discerning whether God is calling them to monastic life. The emphasis will be on learning to listen for God’s call in your life and to learn about Cistercian life at Glencairn. You can read more about Monastic Experience Weekends here on our website.
Directions to the Abbey can be found here on our website. To those who are relying on public transport to travel to Glencairn we can offer private transport to the monastery from the Bus Eireann stop in Fermoy if pre-arranged.
