Natalie Terry, Director of ISLC, had the pleasure of meeting the sisters of the Redwood Monastery four years ago when she made a retreat at their beautiful spot along the Lost Coast in California. She had a profound experience of God's love and mercy there and has looked for opportunities to collaborate with the Cistercian sisters ever since.
This year, the Sisters are generously offering a Lenten retreat to young adults at the ISLC. The day offers a guided introduction to Liturgy of the Hours, the Practice of Silence, and Lectio Divina. The day will also include light manual labor, silent contemplative prayer, sharing on Monastic Life, and talks with the Sisters. Click here for more information. If you know a young adult who could benefit from this experience, please pass the word.
We are grateful for the sisters bringing the monastery to the city for a day!
