Monastic Experience


While we are still a couple of months away, I wanted to promote our Monastic Experience weekend.  We invite men, between the ages of 18 and 35, who are considering a religious vocation to spend a weekend with the monks of Conception Abbey.  It will be an opportunity to discern one’s vocation in an obligation free weekend with time spent in prayer, work, and recreation.  Our guests will be able to meet the community, and eat and pray with the monks too.

If you know someone who might be interested in attending this retreat, please do not hesitate to share this information with them.  You might be just the instrument God is seeking to use to guide another person to respond to God’s call.

For more information, contact me (Fr. Paul)
