How we can be supported and inspired by monastic spirituality while living outside of the walls of a monastery?
THE MONASTIC WAY IN THE SECULAR WORLD
RESIDENTIAL WEEKEND AT MOUNT ST. JOSEPH ABBEY, ROSCREA, COUNTY TIPPERARY
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3rd – SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5th, 2014
This weekend is concerned with the question of how we can be supported and inspired by monastic spirituality while living outside of the walls of a monastery.
It will explore how different, distinctive aspects of Cistercian monasticism can enrich our personal encounter with Jesus Christ and lead to our homes becoming places of sanctuary and spiritual renewal. The value of creating a spiritual place, being stable there and then offering hospitality and spiritual support to others will be recurring themes.
From Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, this weekend of prayer, presentations and group reflection will also give the opportunity to be present at the Divine Office of the Liturgy of the Hours at Mount St. Joseph Abbey. It will involve the participation of monks from this Abbey and from those involved with the initiative of Integritas, a domestic centre of Christian spirituality, Ennisnag, Stoneyford, Co. Kilkenny.
In order to reserve a place, please contact Eileen from Monday to Friday, between 2.00 – 7.00 p.m. at 0505-25600. A reservation can also be made by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost of the weekend per person is €140.00.
