Visit for ICC Mothers and Daughters to the Benedictine Abbey of Ephesus in Gower, MO
The Benedictine Nuns of Mary Queen of Apostles will be hosting the daughters and mothers of ICC on September 17, 2022. The Monastery, located in Gower, MO (8005 NW 316th St., 64454), is about 2 hours and 15 minutes from ICC. We will be arriving prior to the 10:50 am Conventual Mass and departing at the end of the evening recreation at 4:50 pm.
This trip is open to all mothers and daughters of the parish. The nuns will give a talk to both the older girls and the younger girls about religious life. Girls of all ages are welcome, but those under first communion age must be able to keep the silence that the monastery observes throughout the day. If they cannot, they will likely distract from the purpose of the day for the other girls.
Rev. Mother Abbess Cecelia has asked us to provide an approximate number so that they can plan for lunch for us. Please sign up on this form by August 29. The form will also be used to organize transportation and collect contact information for the girls' groups that will begin this fall.
