Trappistine Nuns at Our Lady of the Mississippi Abbey, Dubuque IA

"Join the community in prayer for the liturgy of the hours and Eucharist.  Listen to some of the sisters speak about our way of life, and how God led them to Mississippi Abbey.  Meet other women exploring God's call in their lives.  Have the opportunity to ask questions, take time for extra silence and prayer, visit one-on-one with a sister about your own discernment, and enjoy the beauty of nature around us."

  • On Sunday morning you will process into the Chapter Room with the monks and be with us as the Abbot gives his weekly spiritual talk to the community.

  • There will be sessions for listening to others to see how God has worked in their lives.

  • Come and experience a few days in a monastery that has not stopped praising and worshipping God daily in the heart of the Church for over 165 years.

Come and See weekend is open to all single men between the ages of 18 and 35. Participants must be Roman Catholic and enjoy good health of mind and body.

Space is limited so an early response assures a place in the weekend experience. A detailed schedule of the weekend will be given upon arrival.

The Filippini Sisters are having a "Nun Run" from the 10th to the 13th. They have three spots left as of this morning. I love these Sisters dearly, I was taught by them from kindergarten through high school but I know I'm not called to be one of them. But they did plant a seed in me for my Vocation and they have a place in my heart.

St. Procopius Abbey in Lisle, IL is having a Come and See weekend soon. And they've developed a 15-question survey that may be of interest to discerners. There's no ranking of answers at the end or anything like that - I previewed the survey but didn't submit it. It might give some insights to those who are discerning.
