A donation is not required for enrolling. You may simply submit your enrollments in Step 2 without making a free-will offering in Step 1 to support our monastery. However, in religious poverty, our community depends upon the alms of the faithful to support our religious observance and many young vocations. By freely giving alms to support the sacrifice of our lives as consecrated religious, you gain the merit of your personal sacrifice, and through your support, you share in the merit of our monastery’s religious observance and spiritual mission of prayer and intercession in the heart of the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church.
