Be A Monk for 48 Hours

Live in a monastery for 48 hours

We are St Mary’s Monastery, a contemplative monastery of Benedictine monks in Petersham, a forested area of Central MA, 70 miles from Boston.

June 2-4, 2017 we are having one of our regular Monastic Experience Weekends.

Designed for single Catholic men aged 18-40,  it  can help those who are seeking to understand  a possible call from God to serve him more fully, to experience directly the simplicity, richness and challenges of monastic life.
Those attending will stay, share and speak:  stay in the monastery (space permitting);  share in the monks’ daily balance of prayer, work and study; speak with those who have been called to this contemplative vocation – a life radically centered on Christ.

A link to the flyer (and other information) is given under NEWS & EVENTS on our homepage at
