Twice a year, St. Scholastica Priory hosts what we call “Monastic Experience Weekends”. These events are opportunities for young women to enter into the spirit of monasticism “on site” for about 48 hours—just enough time to gain exposure without being overwhelmed!
Last weekend, we had the pleasure of hosting three young women, welcoming them into our guesthouse, choir stalls, refectory and workplaces. It is a time for prayer and reflection, conversation with sisters and discernment of vocations. We hope to witness to the beauty of a life lived for God alone, and to act as guideposts for those on the journey. It takes courage to try something new and “launch out into the deep” (cf. Lk 5:1-11), and yet what divine blessings are in store for those who do. May Our Lady of the Way lead us all along the right path—the path into the heart of Christ!
