Monastic Experience Retreat

Listen, my Son

It is the fourth Sunday of Lent, also known as “Laetare Sunday,” and we have much reason to rejoice.  This weekend we invited three men for a Monastic Experience discernment retreat.  The weekend began Friday evening with Vespers with the monastic community.  Throughout the retreat, the participants heard talks by various monks and even had the chance to join the community in choir and in the monastic refectory for Saturday supper and breakfast on Sunday morning.  Saturday evening several of the young monks attended a social where we visited and played various card games and the like.

It was great having these men here and to be able to share the joy of our life in common.  For more information regarding future Monastic Experience retreats or to make an individual visit, please contact Fr. Paul
