Monastic Experience Weekend – Vocations
May 31, 2019 - June 2, 2019Free
If you’re serious about God, what does He want you to do next? Listen. Listen and act. Why not try listening and acting in a monastery? Job shadow a monk for a weekend. Monastic Experience Weekend, Friday May 31 – Sunday June 2, St Mary’s Monastery in Central MA, 70 miles from Boston. For single Catholic men aged 18 – 40, an opportunity to discover what a monastic vocation is like by living in the monastery for three days. Prayer, work, community life. A balanced and rhythmical contemplative Benedictine monastic life with a 1600 year history. The Benedictine Rule, ora et labora , work and prayer – backhoe provided! Serious liturgy (Gregorian chant); serious work (intellectual and manual); good humored people (monks; well, that’s the theory!)
