Live in a Monastery for 48 Hours

April 22, AD 2017

St Mary’s Monastery, a contemplative monastery of Benedictine monks in Petersham, Massachusetts will host a Monastic Experience Weekend June 2-4, 2017. The weekend is designed for single Catholic men aged 18-40 who are seeking to understand a possible call from God to serve him through monastic life.

Those attending will stay in the monastery (space permitting), share in the monks’ daily balance of prayer, work and study, and speak with those who have been called to this contemplative vocation.

Additional information is available in the Monastic Experience Weekend flyer and at St. Mary’s website and Facebook page.

For those seeking a peaceful retreat venue, St. Mary’s also offers a guest house which provides accommodation for men and women in 18 single rooms; there is no fixed charge but donations are welcome. A full monastic office is sung in Latin Gregorian Chant seven times per day, with English readings. The guesthouse is managed jointly by the Benedictine monks and the nuns of St. Scholastica Priory.
