“Come and See” John 1:39
Seeking God in Prayer and Community
Mount Saint Joseph Abbey are hosting a Monastic Experience Weekend from Friday 19th – Sunday 21st May 2017. It is an opportunity for men of ages 20 to 45 to find out more about monastic life and to listen to God’s call by sharing the rhythm of the monastic day in prayer, silence, reading, work and community life.  There will be some reflection together on the monastic vocation, some input from the monks and an opportunity to speak one-to-one with a monk.


This might be for you:

  • If you feel attracted to monastic life and wonder whether it might be for you;
  • If you have thought sometimes that God might be calling you to religious life, but have hesitated to take the first step If you would like the support of a small group as you enquire about monastic vocation.
