Forms of Ministry

Our life of prayer and community living overflows into a life of service both within the monastery and in external ministries.  In our monastic prayer – rooted in Sacred Scripture, in silence, and in the timeless flow of liturgy – we make an offering to God in union with the prayer of the Church.  Through life in monastic community, in which we seek God together following the age-old yet ever-new way of St. Benedict, we offer a witness to Christian love in an age of violence and stability in an age of transience and instability.  Our external ministry to the People of God is a response to the Gospel that impels us to loving service and fills our hearts with the desire to share the love of Christ with all.
