Come and See Weekends
During the last two years we have held 'Come and See' weekends for those who are seeking the Lord and are wondering what the Lord maybe calling them to.These weekends have been an opportunity to spend time in a monastic community joining the sisters in their daily rhythm of Mass / Eucharistic Service, praying the Divine Office, prayer and intercession, lectio divina and work in an atmosphere of silent recollection.
However we are not offering this opportunity during 2015 since in the last 10 months three women have entered our noviciate. We hope to hold another 'Come and See' weekend in 2016. If you would like to visit in the meantime then please let us know.
