We actually call each Monastic Immersion Weekend group a ‘class’ since we only have two MIWs a year. We also say, after you attend that you have been ‘crossed’ because you receive a new Holy Cross Abbey crucifix from the Abbot your first night here in a fairly moving ceremony at the high altar in the abbey church. Some, who have attended more than one MIW, consider themselves ‘double crossed’ having received more than one cross from the Abbot.
One of our double crossed MIW alumni so enjoys the abbey he has sent a check to cover the cost of the MIW ($300) for someone who perhaps would like to attend but can’t afford it.
If you are interested in this scholarship send email to email@example.com and let us know … we’ll consider each person applying (along with our alumnus donor) and let you know.
Do it quickly though because there are only a couple slots left.
The MIW (information at Take Part on the home page) is September 11-13 this year.
