Monastic Residency Program

Monastic Residency Program

Mepkin’s program for men, of any faith tradition, entails a temporary commitment of a year as an affiliate member of our Mepkin Community, living the Cistercian way of life. This is a real opportunity to experience monastic life and the feel of the rhythm of the psalms prayed in community.  Those accepted into the program engage fully in all the activities of the monks. These include, liturgical prayer seven times a day, personal prayer, manual labor, some community meetings, spiritual companioning and formal classes. Those interested are required to attend the Monastic Institute Program which will be held this year from June 27 to July 29, 2019. For more information or to request an application. monasticinstitutemap@gmail.com.   Know that the deadline for applications is April 1, 2019
