Monastic Refectory

Monastic Refectory

St. Benedict placed great emphasis on the monastic refectory (dining room).  Here not only is the community nourished physically by the common meal but also nourished spiritually by table reading.  The Prioress sits at the head of the U-shaped tables, with the Sisters sitting in rank along the sides.  Table reader’s stand occupies the right corner.
