Cloister Days


                                             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 take place on  Saturday, 22nd of September  2018 contact: poorclaresvocationsgalway@gmail.com

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, the truth;
Where there is doubt, the faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.


St Francis
