I am very happy to mention the advance notice of two upcoming vocation discernment weekends at the Monastery of Saint Catherine of Siena, Drogheda, Co Louth (pictured above). The first weekend will take place from Friday 6th February to Sunday 8th February 2009; the second such weekend takes place from Friday 20th March to Sunday 22nd March 2009.
These special weekends are designed for young women who are discerning a vocation to Monastic life and are interested to learn more about our Dominican tradition of Contemplative Monastic life. These are basically informative weekends with opportunity to join our community in the chapel for the celebration of the liturgy and Eucharistic Adoration; in addition to some conferences there is time for personal prayer and reflection and opportunity to talk with a sister about discerning the Lord's call in one's life.
It is important to book early as places are limited. For information you can contact Sr Breda OP, Monastery of St Catherine of Siena, The Twenties, Drogheda, Co Louth or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
