Monastic Experience Weekend: 27th – 29th October 2023
Experience monastic life for a weekend
We welcome women who are discerning God’s call to visit Glencairn Abbey to find out more about Cistercian life at Glencairn in the company of others who are also considering monastic life.
Monastic Experience Weekends are a great way to be introduced to Cistercian life and how it is lived at Glencairn. Meet our community and experience the rhythm of monastic life with our balance of prayer, work, and contemplation. Talk to 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 for single women who are discerning their vocation. The emphasis will be on discerning God’s call in your life and also to learn specifically 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 will be travelling by public transport please inquire with Sr Sarah and we can arrange to meet you at the nearest bus stop to the Abbey.
