Oct 6 - Come Away Participants

We are happy to welcome four men participating in a Come Away retreat with us this weekend. They are receiving an introductory experience of our contemplative life over the course of the next few days. They have an opportunity to participate in our monastic celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours, to hear how some of us were led to monastic life and New Melleray, to share their own journey of seeking God’s will in the midst of life decisions, and to ask questions about our life and practices.

“Come Away” (Listening and Discerning: A Life Directions Weekend) is designed to give single Catholic men an opportunity to explore the possibility of a religious calling while experiencing the rhythm and balance that lies at the heart of monastic life in general and New Melleray in particular.

Please contact our Vocation Director for information about our 2018 Come Away retreats or to learn about other opportunities to participate in our Cistercian contemplative life.
