A Cloister Day is an opportunity to spend a day at the monastery to learn more about the Poor Clare way of life and to experience some periods of prayer with the sisters. If you are between the ages of 21 and 40 and you think that the Lord may be calling you to follow Him more closely in some form of consecrated life, then coming to a Cloister Day can be very helpful. In an informal atmosphere, there is an opportunity to chat with sisters who have already made the leap and yet who understand the struggles involved in a life-changing decision. It's also a good time to chat with other young women who are going through the same kind of soul-searching. Cloister Days take place on Saturdays throughout the year from 10am to 5.30 pm. To find out more or to book a place at the next Cloister Day which will tke place on the 21st of April 2018 contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words.
Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
Pray then in this way:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
