April 23 – April 26, 2020 and October 1-4, 2020

Discerning a Contemplative Vocation

Find out who you already are

We make this spiritual heritage available today and invite young women (ages 18-40) to join us for this unique opportunity to experience the richness of monastic life on a weekend of monastic prayer for those young Catholic women discerning a vocation to religious life.

“We have what we seek, it is here all the time, and if we give it time, it will make itself known to us.”               Thomas Merton

Sisters will be available to guide personal discernment.

Participate in the monastic rhythm of prayer and community life through the Divine Liturgy,  Eucharist, Lectio Divina and meditation. The Weekend includes conferences on prayer and monastic spirituality as well as hikes in our old growth redwood forests. Some time for manual labor may also be included. Meals are vegetarian and with be taken with the sisters.  Lodging is in the Guest House.
