Our upcoming Spring Monastic Experience Weekend takes place 12-14 April, here at St. Mary’s Abbey.
We invite those who may be discerning God’s call to visit the Abbey and stay in our Abbey guesthouse, meet the community and join us in our daily rhythm of liturgy and work, community life and solitude for personal prayer. Input on the Cistercian way of life and an opportunity to talk with a sister about your own vocation call are also scheduled as part of the weekend’s activities. Personal time for a quiet walk in the natural surroundings of the Abbey as well as work in the Abbey gardens also introduces the outdoors aspect of monastic life to participants.
If you would like to find out more about this weekend, please contact Sr. Sarah, vocations director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at: 087 1909 830.
