Vocations and Retreats
The Benedictine Sisters of Florida continually invite and mentor women considering a call to the monastic life. Vocations are vital to the continuation of our Benedictine tradition as people of prayer, people for others – able to give oneself fully in service to others, places and works of ministry. Our retreat programs at Holy Name Monastery attract people from all walks of life seeking the presence of God in their lives.
Communicating our vocations and retreat programs requires financial assistance if we are to continue to grow. We are not supported by Rome or a diocese. We ask that you prayerfully consider sponsoring an ad or a series of ads for vocations and/or retreats.
Enjoy our prayer walk that encircles the monastery which is open to the public. You are welcome to donate a Memorial Tree, Bench or a Brick along the walkway. For more information call (352) 588-8443 or email: [email protected]
Our new aquaponics ministry is directed by S. Miriam Cosgrove. She could use some help with planting, maintenance of the fish tanks and vegetable garden. The Benedictine Sisters of Florida hope to get to the point where this program helps them to be more sustainable and hopefully helps feed others in need. Contact us at (352) 588-8320 or [email protected] if you can volunteer some time each week. We are also in need of funds to upgrade the system. Your donation is fully tax-deductible.
The beauty of nature encircles the monastery because of the love and toil of Sisters Mary Romana and Miriam. We welcome donations or in-kind plants for the rose, butterfly and vegetable gardens. Food to nourish God’s earthly miracles is also needed.
