Weaving prayer, hospitality, justice and care for the earth into a shared way of life as an ecumenical, Benedictine community.
Ours is a tradition of forming community with people committed to finding common ground and deepening their connections with each other and with God.
Christ calls us to love one another. Our response to this call begins with our care for one another in community. Christ also calls us to embrace our world and its people.
We have grown in appreciation of various cultures and a diversity of gifts. We helped build a grade school in Kenya, a clinic in Northeast China, and a retreat center in Nigeria.
Our concern and respect for each person overcomes barriers of race, gender, culture and religion. All who present themselves – Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists and Hindus – bring us their blessing and ask our blessing in return.
As a monastic community, we welcome single Christian women who will embrace Benedictine spirituality and retain their denominational identity.
