COMMUNITY & MONASTERY
A monastery is a sign to the world, a sign written by the lives of those whom God calls to live the Gospel in this deliberate way. Learn more about our community and our Benedictine monastery.
Benedict’s Rule is not only for those living in monasteries. It is a wisdom document that Christians have used for the past 1500 years in seeking God. Benedict applies the Gospel to all aspects of daily life. This prism we refer to as the Rule of St. Benedict. Learn more about Benedictine monasticism as it applies to everyday life.
