Monastic Experience Days


                                             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 5.30 pm) 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: poorclaresvocationsgalway@gmail.com

Christ on the cross bows His head,
Waiting for you,
That He may kiss you;
His arms are outstretched,
That He may embrace you,
His hands are open,
That He may enrich you;
His body spread out,
That He may give Himself totally,
His feet are nailed,
That He may stay there,
His side is open for you,
That He may let you enter there.


St. Bonaventure
