From the Trappist nuns of Santa Rita Abbey in Sonoita, Arizona (diocese of Tucson). It's a small community - 10 nuns at the moment.

Monastic Experience Weekend Coming Soon

August 25-27 this year we will have another Monastic Experience Weekend. We are currently running a Facebook ad to spread the word among young Catholic women who are discerning their vocation and are interested in the contemplative life. Please join us in prayer that several young women will come to this event and be blessed and helped in their search for God, and perhaps return later to continue discerning with us. Two of the women who attended last year’s Monastic Experience Weekend are continuing in the discernment process in hopes of entering our monastery; please keep them in prayer, too! For more information about these weekends, follow this link to our MEW page: http://www.santaritaabbey.org/monastic-experience-weekends/ If you’d like to help us spread the word about our weekends, feel free to download and share the MEW brochure which you will find on the page.

The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in Clyde, Missouri, will host a Come and See Weekend in October for women discerning a religious vocation. The event is scheduled Oct. 13-15, 2017.

Participants will enter into the rhythm of contemplative life and learn how to recognize the signs of a religious calling, different ways to pray and how to create silent space in life. They will also share with others who are discerning a religious vocation and ask vowed religious about monastic life.

Activities include singing the Divine Office, participating in daily Eucharist, adoration and exposition, sharing in community meals, recreation and monastic works.

Those who would like to participate should be single Catholic women between the ages of 18 and 40. The event is free for those participating.

For more information, please contact Vocation Director Sister Maria Victoria Cutaia, OSB at (660) 944-2221 ext. 127 or vocation@benedictinesisters.org. Information is also available online here.
