Megan and Piper help out Sister Marcine and Mary in the Bakery

In June 2014 Stacie, Piper and Megan spent a week with us doing a Monastic Experience.  A Monastic Experience is an in-depth introduction to Benedictine spirituality and monastic living.  This way they come to know our prayer life, our Sisters and opportunities to share in some of the monastic work.  While here, they joined the Sisters in the Liturgy of the Hours and Holy Mass.  They had opportunities for discernment, various types of prayer such as Lectio Divina and Centering prayer, spiritual direction and the steps for entrance into the monastery.  In addition they joined the Sisters in various monastic ministries such as the bakery, the garden and care of our elderly Sisters.  In the evenings they shared in the various living groups of the Sisters.  It was a joy to have them and they will be back for occasional visits.
