For those of us in the U.S., The Learning Channel will finally begin airing the four part series featuring a group of women, with no vocation, who attempt to live for 40 days as a monastic in a Cistercian abbey. This is similar to the series titled “The Monastery” which aired last October and November. In fact, the name is the same, only this time it will feature women instead of men.
Unfortunately, the series will air at 2 pm Eastern. But at least it isn’t 2 am!
