How to join

We welcome anyone who is interested in exploring whether we are the right community for them.  If you would like to begin that process, please contact our Prior.  We will suggest some reading material and meet regularly to discuss the fundamentals of Benedictine spirituality and the possible impact of our Rule on your current spiritual practice.  After 6 months, and assuming that we are all agreed that your discernment will continue, you will be invited to join us for our monthly ‘Monday with food’ meetings where we say the Office, share food together and discuss our prayer needs and any plans for the coming weeks.  After another 6 months a decision will be made by both enquirer and community as to whether they will formally make their Oblation and join the community.
