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 20 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.

Mary is mother, she always assists us: when we are working and when we are looking for work, when we have clear ideas and when we are confused, when prayer flows spontaneously and when the heart is desolate: She is always there to help us. Mary is the Mother of God, our mother and mother of the Church. So many men and women, young and old have turned to Her to say ‘thank you’ and to beg a favour. Mary takes us to Jesus and Jesus gives us peace. Let us turn to Her, trusting in her assistance, with courage and hope.
