Aug 31 – Come Away

Our final “Come Away” retreat for 2018 will be August 31 through September 2. Come Away (Listening and Discerning: A Life Directions Weekend) gives 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. Participants receive an introductory experience of our contemplative life over the course of a weekend. 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.

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