Last week, we got a vocation inquiry from someone in California who said that she’d heard that Transfiguration Monastery was closing. She did not want to disclose the source of the rumor.

For the record, we’re alive and well, living our contemplative monastic life to the best of our ability, in fidelity to God and to the Rule of St. Benedict. We plan to keep going for as long as God gives us life and health, and we hope that there will be women discerning a vocation to contemplative monasticism who will ask to join us.

If you would like to attend the Oblate Day on July 26 and have not yet signed up, please contact us as soon as possible. We have room for one additional overnight guest.
