Monastic Experience Weekends

Meanwhile, we are preparing another Monastic Experience Weekend for single Catholic women, ages 21-40, who are discerning a call to consecrated life. We have two planned for this year, the first one is March 24-26, and the second one August 25-27, 2017. These weekends give women the opportunity to participate in the Divine Office and the Eucharist with us in our monastic church, to learn about the Trappist Cistercian way of life and our life here at Santa Rita Abbey, to share their own vocation story and to hear our Sisters’ stories, and to ask any questions they may have. Below you will find a link to our color flyer promoting the March weekend. If you would like to help us spread our invitation to the young women in discernment in your area, please download the flyer and share it however you wish. Ask your pastor if it he would post it at your church, or perhaps you’d like to share it with the nearest college Newman Center. Thank you! For more information, see our web page at http://www.santaritaabbey.org/monastic-experience-weekends/
