What is a Come and See Monastic Experience
at St. Emma Monastery?

Every year we welcome interested single Catholic women, age 16-40, to experience our Benedictine monastic life here at the monastery.

These days enable women to explore the possibility that Jesus Christ might be inviting them to follow Him more closely through a monastic vocation.

Participants take part in our daily schedule of prayer the daily Eucharist and The Liturgy of the Hours, sung 6 times daily and in our work in the monastery, in the gift and book shop, and in caring for guests.  Recreational time together belongs also to the monastic day.

There is also time for each individual to spend in silence, reading and reflecting.  Talks with Mother Prioress and Sisters are also offered.

The Come and See Weekend normally begins on Friday afternoon and closes Sunday after lunch.  For those desiring a longer time, arrangements can be made.

 Please contact Sr. Mary Clare at 724-834-3060 or email for additional information or to register.
