Luigi, if you’re willing to go one state north, there is also Mount Angel Abbey in Oregon.

Thank you:)

To be clear, I am already attached to a Monastery.

I don’t want this to sound cold and calculating:(

but the Bennies there are getting older. No replacements (yet). I am checking it out “just in case”:frowning:

Please pray

PS-- I would never leave, unless I was forced to because it closed, BTW


#7

Ah, I see; I will pray for you and vocations to your monastery, Luigi, and will ask my friends to do the same.

Just "re-found" this thread.

Your prayers worked!

We have a new monk (and he's even younger than me :D )

Good work. :thumbsup::D

Deo Gratias!! May more such come to the portal.

Luigi, I haven’t posted in many months, but I saw this and had to respond.


#11

I am glad that you did. Please keep posting :slight_smile:


#12

Just an FYI update, but that is no longer true. There are four Postulants, two monks just graduated Novitiate and received Simple Profession, and I think three were Solemnly Professed. So fortunately Mount Angel Abbey is doing quite well, although you are correct that the older monks are by far the majority.


#13

Praise God!

Although I wasn’t referring to Mount Angel :wink:


#14

Oh. Mea culpa. :blush:


#15

Not a problem, amico mio :slight_smile:

Links don't work, but will look into information about Mount Angel


#17

Well, in our defense this thread is 3 years old. :smiley:

Good luck!

Hello…I’m Carol from Tehachapi CA. I’m also looking for a monestary – Benedictine, near Tehachapi (Bakersfield):confused:


#19

There aren’t any monasteries really close to you.

St. Andrew’s (Benedictine) is in Valyermo - saintandrewsabbey.com/Default.asp
New Camaldoli (Camaldolese) is in Big Sur - contemplation.com/

I think those are the closest. There are also Benedictines in Oceanside and Trappists at New Clairvaux and a woman’s community in Whitethorn but I’m not sure if they offer guest accommodations.


#20

Monastery of the Risen Christ might be a wee bit closer than New Camaldoli. :slight_smile:
