The Program is planned to run from Sunday 17th March  to Friday 14th June 2019.


Application forms for the Program can be downloaded from this site or sent to you as an email attachment. Please contact Fr Brendan if you would like further information.


The closing date for applications is September 30th 2018. Later applications will be considered according to the availability of places. It is hoped that confirmation of places can be made by the end of October.


The all-inclusive fee for the Program is expected to be €6,900 (Euros) which represents the actual cost of putting on the Program, per person. Thanks to generous of supporters of the Program a limited number of bursaries and scholarships will be available for those communities in need of assistance.

2017 Program



The 2017 Program has successfully concluded. We had a 29 participants from 20 different countries: 11 women and 19 men; Cistercians (O.C.S.O and O.Cist) and Benedictines of various Congregations. We hope and pray that their 3 months of study and reflection will enrich their communities in the coming years. We were particularly pleased to welcome some new teachers, including Fr Luke Dysinger who came from Valyermo, California (covering for Fr Columba Stewart who was on sabbatical) and Fr Scott Brodeur who teaches at the Gregorian University and introduced us to St Paul in the City. We were also delighted that one of our regular teachers, Dom Gregory Polan was elected Abbot Primate, and was able to accompany us more closely. THANKS TO A WONDERFUL GROUP THAT MADE MFP 2017 SO SPECIAL.
