The monks of Conception Abbey are hosting a Monastic Experience weekend this fall. Experience Benedictine monastic life at Conception Abbey from October 31st to November 2nd. Men between the ages of 18-35, who are considering a vocation to religious life, are invited for a discernment retreat. This weekend will be an excellent opportunity to draw closer to God through prayer, silence, and reading the Scriptures. You will meet and spend time with the monastic community and grow in knowledge and understanding of monastic life and our practices.
I ask all our friends to pray that we have a successful weekend and that men who are discerning a call to the religious life will have the courage to follow God. You may know a young man who would be a good candidate for this weekend, please consider passing along this information to him or notifying him of the experience.
Our life is filled with many blessings and we hope to share the joy of following Christ as Benedictine monks!
Fr. Paul Sheller, O.S.B.
