The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration will host a Monastic Experience from Saturday, May 23, through Friday, May 29, at their monastery in Tucson, Arizona.

The event encourages women who are discerning a religious calling to experience monastic life without any strings attached. 

“It will provide participants an in-depth look at monastic life and the opportunity to experience it on a daily basis,” said Vocation Director Sister Ruth Elaine Starman, OSB. “Women discerning a religious calling will enter into the rhythm of monastic life, receive daily input on prayer, their discernment, ask vowed women religious questions about their own vocations and engage in faith sharing with others who are traveling on a similar journey.”

The event is for single Catholic women between the ages of 18 and 47 who are discerning a religious vocation. The Monastic Experience is free for participants and includes room, board and recreation.

The Benedictine Sisters are a semi-cloistered, contemplative order of monastic women who serve the Catholic Church through a ministry of prayer and are the largest religious producers of altar breads. They have more than 70 members who live at their two communities in Tucson and in Clyde, Missouri.
