Monastic Life as Lived –
One View

He has been taught how to live this life by the example and teaching of his brother monks and the engagement with the coalface of daily life. At best it's simple.

Venue St Peter's Hall, Eastern Hill
Cost $15 (concession: $12)
Speaker Br Bernard Redden, OCSO
Br Bernard Redden joined the Cistercian Monks at Tarrawarra Abbey in 1976. His working life has revolved mostly around the monastery farm and the guesthouse. His prayer life has been shaped and supported by the common daily prayer of the monastery and his personal encounters with grace.
