Monastic Vocation Retreat

Monastic Vocation Retreat

16th - 19th February | No Cost

Practicing Catholic men, 20's to 40's, seriously considering the possibility of a vocation as a Benedictine monk at Buckfast Abbey in Devon, are invited to come for a 'Come & See' Vocations Weekend the first weekend of Lent, 16th-19th February 2018.

St.Benedict says 'Lent is an opportunity for making up for our negligence at other times'. It's a time for special effort and serious reflection. If you are moved by the Passion and Death of Christ, and look to share in His Resurrection, why not 'Come and See'. Men wishing to attend this retreat can contact the monastery guest master by email: This will be a guided retreat with a short programme of talks.
