We journey together
Ours is a community of women seeking a deeper awareness of God’s presence in our lives. Living in community is about living life together. In community, everyone works hand in hand, sharing meals, prayer, work and conversation.
Benedictine spirituality brings together:
- community and solitude
- contemplation and ministry
- silence and dialogue
- stability and change
- needs of the individual and needs of the community
- work and leisure
While Benedictine spirituality is communal, it recognizes the uniqueness of the individual. The monastic value of respect for the person is an essential element of community life. Each member holds a privileged and equal place. Her special gifts, needs and differences are not only accepted, they are celebrated.
An inclusive spirit and an interest in the environment are signs that Holy Wisdom Monastery may be a good place for you.
