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.

If we let Christ into our lives, we lose nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful and great. 

No!  Only in this friendship are the doors of life opened wide.  Only in this friendship is the great potential of human existence truly revealed.  Only in this friendship do we experience beauty and liberation.  Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything.           Pope Benedict XVI
