June 16 - 18, 2017 Vocation Weekend
Little Portion Hermitage, Berryville, AR
The Brothers and Sisters of Charity will host a vocation weekend June 16 - 18, 2017 for those interested in life at the monastery as a celibate brother or sister, or a single who remains open to marriage.
We will begin Friday at 5:15 PM with silent adoration of the Blessed Sacrament or a half hour, and a light supper, both with the community.
Our founder, John Michael Talbot, will then give a presentation.
The weekend will end Sunday with noon Mass and lunch.
You are most welcome to come and become better acquainted with us through common and personal prayer times, hearing talks, sharing meals, touring the monastery, celebrating Mass, and recreating with us.
The weekend is free, so you would only have to pay for your transportation to and from the monastery.
For true discernment, we recommend planning to stay for an extended week or two immediately following the vocation weekend! (This will also save you money in traveling expenses if you plan to return!)

If you would like to combine this with a longer visit, you will be asked to submit two letters of recommendation to:

The rule of the brothers and sisters is the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We should be troubled about nothing except this all encompassing rule.
All that matters is that one be created anew.
(BSC Scripture Rule, see Gal. 6:14-16)
