The externs are the guardians of the cloister & custodians of the external areas of the monastery.
People skills will be a must for the externs. They may be the only bible anyone may ever read. Older men
and women may be more suited to this vocation.
Our Cloisterite externs will wear a long navy blue habit & navy veil with wide white headband for the women, and
long navy blue habit with attached hood for the men. There will be no belts or medallions. Rosaries will be carried
in the pocket.
Externs will join the community for Mass. The extern quarters of the monastery will have business hours, most probably
8 am to 6 pm.
The externs' sleeping quarters will be just inside the enclosure door, separate from the rest of the community.
