Icon Writing at the Monastery of St Alphonsus

Icon Writing at the Monastery of St Aphonsus

During the Month of July 2018 there were two Icon Writing Retreats and many came to write an Icon and go deeper into God during the process of praying and writing the icons with Mihai Cucu the master Iconographer.  The Icons were blessed and anointed on the Saturday morning and the icons were venerated by the parishioners.

Lectio Divina

Each Saturday evening the community, led by a Sister, leads the ’Lectio Divina’ focusing on the Gospel for the following day. ’Lectio Divina’ is a process of spiritual reading, slow meditative, listening and responding to the Word of God. It is fundamental to the monastic life of prayer, together with the seven hours of prayer time in the monastery.
