Our Vision

Our vision is a future of hope created by living the Rule of St. Benedict as we respond to the needs of the times.

Our Mission

Our mission is to seek God through community life, prayer, ministry, and care for all of creation.

Be Our Guest

In chapter 53 of The Rule of St. Benedict we read: "All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ, for He Himself will say: I was a stranger and you welcomed me." (Matt. 25:35) We hope you will enjoy our web offerings and one day be able to visit us and be refreshed by the hospitality we offer through our prayer and communal living "That in all things God may be glorified."
