One of the many consequences of the COVID pandemic was the fact that we had to cancel our monastic guest program for the last year. We even had to decline some people whose bags were all packed and ready to come to Mepkin. We are currently contacting all of those who had already completed the application process to see if they are still available to join us for the program.
Father Columba is now taking applications for future monastic guests. We can also share the good news that we are now, for the first time, accepting women as monastic guests. This is a new and exciting addition to the program.
