Monastic Experience Weekend: for women ages 21-40 interested in becoming a nun
Memorial Day Weekend: May 24-27, 2019
Labor Day Weekend: August 30-September 2, 2019
“I really would like to thank you and the sisters for allowing me to participate in the life of the monastery as a volunteer. As Sr. Kate reminded me in the kitchen the first day on the job–all is grace–which sums up my experience while at Santa Rita Abbey. I felt the experience was balanced in both work and prayer … The quiet of the day-to-day rhythm is something that I hope to continue to foster in my own life back in ‘the world’.”
"It has been an amazing and humbling experience to be able to see your lives of service and love for God ... It has been a huge learning experience for my personal prayer life and the way I view prayer."
"I have never experienced anything like this before, but it has been incredible! I will forever hold it in my heart as a life-changing weekend."
"Having been raised Catholic and gone to a Catholic college, I had heard about monastic life, but I wanted to see it to be able to understand it. It's like putting a face to a name. Now I want to spread the word of the beauty of this special vocation."
