On Friday, 27th Jan 2017 until Sunday, 29th Jan 2017, we held the Monastic Experience Weekend. Four young women spent the weekend with us. They came from different backgrounds and nations, but they all blended together so well that they gave the impression that it seems as if they have known each other before. They joined the community for the celebration of the Divine Office and Mass. They also did some manual work as well as sharing the daily life with the sisters, including some meals .
During this event, Sr. Maria and Sr. Mary Stella, who led the event and assisted the four women, reflected on community life according to the Rule of St. Benedict.
They appreciated the event very much and hopefully will have found it helpful for a deepening oftheir life of faith. We pray for many young people who are discerning their future, especially those who are considering religious life that the light of Christ may lead and strengthen them.
