Cloister Days


                                             A Cloister Day is an opportunity to spend a day at the monastery to learn more about the Poor Clare way of life and to experience some periods of prayer with the sisters. If you are between the ages of 21 and 40 and you think that the Lord may be calling you to follow Him more closely in some form of consecrated life, then coming to a Cloister Day can be very helpful. In an informal atmosphere, there is an opportunity to chat with sisters who have already made the leap and yet who understand the struggles involved in a life-changing decision. It's also a good  time to chat with other young women who are going through the same kind of soul-searching. Cloister Days take place on Saturdays throughout the year from 10am to 5.30 pm. To find out more or to book a place at the next Cloister Day which will take place on  Saturday, 22nd of September  2018 contact: poorclaresvocationsgalway@gmail.com

It should not be surprising that a light so enkindled,
so illuminating could not be kept from shining brilliantly
and giving clear light in the house of the Lord;
nor could a vessel filled with perfume be so hidden
that it would not emit its fragrance
and suffuse the Lord's house with a sweet aroma.
