Opportunities for Discernment

Saint Meinrad Archabbey offers several opportunities for young men up to age 40 to visit the monastery and discern a possible monastic vocation.

Establishing a Relationship: Men interested discerning a religious or monastic vocation are invited to contact the vocation director to ask questions and begin building a relationship with the monastery. Our vocation director can be contacted by telephone (812-357-6318) or by email (vocations@saintmeinrad.org). This website (www.saintmeinrad.org) also provides a wide range of helpful information about the life and work of the monks of Saint Meinrad.
