A Special Invitation – Seekers Week!
Are you discerning a vocational call to religious life? Are you a single Catholic woman who is curious about the Benedictine way of seeking God. We invite you to come spend time with the Sisters to learn about our life together. Seekers Week at Holy Name Monastery is December 26, 2019 to January 1, 2020 and again April 5, 2020 to April 12, 2020.
Time for Seekers is an opportunity to listen to God in the richness of prayer, liturgy, silence and Community in a monastic setting. Sharing with others and a vocation director is also part of this special program. If this sounds like something that could be the answer to your prayer, register with S. Mary Clare at 352-588-7188 or email@example.com.
If the Seekers Week schedules are not convenient, please know that you are welcome to visit our community when you can arrange to be free of other commitments.
