“Come and See” John 1:39 Vocation Weekend for Men.

“Come and See” John 1:39 Seeking God in Prayer and Community

The Cistercian Monks of Mount Saint Joseph Abbey are hosting a Monastic Experience Weekend from Friday 29th September – Sunday 1st October 2017. It is an opportunity for Catholic men aged between 20 and 45 to find out more about monastic life and to listen to God’s call by sharing the rhythm of the monastic day in prayer, silence, reading, work and community life.  There will be some reflection together on the monastic vocation, some input from the monks and an opportunity to speak one-to-one with a monk.


This might be for you:

  • If you feel attracted to monastic life and wonder whether it might be for you;
  • If you have thought sometimes that God might be calling you to religious life, but have hesitated to take the first step;
  • If you would like the support of a small group as you enquire about monastic vocation.

To make an enquiry or to arrange a meeting to talk about your vocation discernment, please contact our Vocations Director, Br Malachy Thompson, by email to malachy@msjroscrea.ie or text ‘INFO’ to 085 8338503.
