Monastic Experience Weekend at St. Mary's

Monastic Experience Weekend

June 2 - 4, 2017

Have you ever thought that your call is to do something bigger than yourself? Or wondered if God is calling you to a deeper encounter with Him? Have you considered transcending the ordinary? Come and see.

We are inviting single men (18 – 40 years old) for a weekend opportunity to experience from within the rhythm and balance of Benedictine monastic prayer and community life in a house of Benedictine monks.

If you would like more information please contact Father Gregory at or call him at 978–724–3350. For a printable flyer click here.

Pluscarden Pilgrimage June - September 2017

Pluscarden Pilgrimage
Our motherhouse, Pluscarden Abbey (founded 1230 AD), is conducting a 1230 mile pilgrimage from their founding monastery in France to the Abbey in an effort to raise funds for a major building renovation. There will be 13 legs of roughly 80 miles with different groups of pilgrims each week, with daily Mass and talks. They’re looking for physical pilgrims (to walk), virtual pilgrims (to pray and offer organizational help), and financial pilgrims (who can help cover costs.) Academic credits available for US college students.

For more information contact Fr. Dunstan at St. Mary's at or 978–724–3350.
