Our Consecrated life is guided and inspired by the life and rule of Saint Benedict known as the founder of western monasticism as we know it today. Our house is known as a Monastery, we are a foundation of the Benedictine Congregation of The Holy Spirit. As part of the world wide structure of Benedictines. Our Benedictine Community was founded on the feast of Christ the King in November of 1987.
Ordo Sancti Benedicti
The Benedictine Congregation is not a centralized Order governed from Rome, Monte Cassino, or Subiaco. The Benedictine order spreads outwards from its established Monasteries to all parts of the world. It is built up from individual and autonomous Abbeys, Monasteries or Priories, which are the houses of the great Benedictine Monastic Structure. These houses are loosely grouped together in what are called Congregations. These Congregations are groups of Abbeys united to assist one another in their monastic observance and to preserve the tranquility of order of the Rule of Saint Benedict. Each Abbey in the Congregation has its own individual history, its own traditions and customs and its own form of self supporting works.
All Benedictine monks live according to the spirit of the Rule of Saint Benedict, but they interpret it differently and accommodate their daily time schedules and the details of their life to suit the individuality of their house and the environment in which they live.
