Catholic Retreats Continued....

Douai Abbey 4th - 6th July 2008 - run by Young Catholic Adults

Pluscarden Abbey 1st -6th September 2008

The Benedictine monks of Pluscarden Abbey are organising a Monastic Experience Retreat for single Catholic men aged 18-40 to be held at the Abbey on 1st – 6th September 2008. The format will be the same as the successful retreat held last year and those who attend will live the same life as the monks and follow the monastic timetable. They will be in choir with the monks, do some lectio divina (spiritual reading) and prayer as we do, eat in the monastic refectory, do some manual work with the brethren each afternoon etc. There will also be a few talks and discussions on things such as the meaning of monastic life, monastic prayer and the Divine Office, and Gregorian Chant, as well as a tour of the Abbey some periods of recreation and a chance to speak with the brethren.
Of course don't forget during the weekend of the 4th- 6th 2008 July Young Catholic Adults will be running a Traditional Retreat at Douai Abbey, the retreat will be led by Br. Christopher Greener who will give a series of talks on St. Benedict, See:-

A new blog for traditional vocations!! is a blog to promote vocations to Traditional societies and religious orders using the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, including religious communities for women.

It's latest post contains an intesting feature on:-

Sunday, April 13th is World Day of Prayer for Vocations:

"The Church prays everyday to the Holy Spirit for the gift of vocations. Gathered around the Virgin Mary, Queen of the Apostles, as in the beginning, the ecclesial community learns from her how to implore the Lord for a flowering of new apostles, alive with the faith and love that are necessary for the mission."-- Pope Benedict XVI.

Chris at the Catholic Converts blog is organising a 24 Hour Rosary for Vocations. He is therefore looking for a minumum of 24 people to each take a different hour of the day to pray the Holy Rosary for Vocations.You can find out more about this effort at the blog. Please pray for holy Priests, monks and nuns!
