Monastic Experience Days

 A Monastic Experience Day will be held at the monastery on Saturday March 2nd from 10 am to 5pm. Those interested can book a place through the contact form in General Vocations Enquiries


A Monastic Experience Day (or Cloister Day as it is sometimes called) is an opportunity to spend a day at the monastery (from 10am to 5pm) to learn more about the Poor Clare way of life and to experience some periods of prayer with the sisters. If you are under 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 Monastic Experience 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. To find out more or to book a place at the next Monastic Experience Day contact:

Back to top

Place your mind before the mirror of eternity!
Place your soul in the brilliance of glory!
Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance
And transform your whole being into the image of the Godhead Itself
through contemplation!
So that you too may feel what His friends feel
as they taste the hidden sweetness
which God Himself has reserved from the
beginning for those who love Him'.

From Third letter of St. Clare
