Is there anyone here who yearns for life
and desires to see good days?

This yearning for life, which is innate in all of us, is a yearning for God. For some, this desire draws them to unite with others in a single-hearted search for God following the ever-ancient yet ever-new monastic way of life.

As Vocation Ministers for our Community, we would like to share with you something of our monastic charism. We invite you to explore these pages to learn more about the monastic way of seeking God and the process of becoming a member of our community.

We welcome any questions you may have as you follow your yearning for God.  May God bless you on your journey.
