The Abbot and community are pleased to welcome the juniors of the Region of the Isles to Mount St Joseph Abbey. Each year the secretary of formation for the region Sr Michelle Miller ocso organises a course on different aspects of monastic life for those in formation. This year Sr Nuala O’Reilly ocso a nun of St Mary’s Abbey Glencairn is leading a week of study and reflection on the Psalms. We pray that this week will be an enlightening and grace filled time for all participants.
Through their participation in a program of monastic education the juniors are led, on the one hand, to a more conscious awareness of the content of the faith and of the monastic patrimony; on the other hand, they are invited to a deeper reflection on their own beliefs and values.
