Our 2013 ANNUAL APPEAL focuses on our Mission Statement (above)
as well as our Vision Statement:
We, the Benedictine Sisters of Colorado Springs, Colorado,
are impelled by the Word of God to listen and respond to the issues of our times. Reverencing all creation, we will be radical signs of God's love and compassion and use our resources in service with all God's people especially the poor and oppressed.
Please read through our Appeal flyer and consider helping us
to continue our works with all those in need.
Please visit our Development page for more information and
to give electronically. Thank you for your support!
|We are pleased to announce that a NEW
Benet Hill Monastery website will be COMING SOON!
We look forward to a fresh, exciting, dynamic NEW
web presence and hope that you will continue to visit us often!!
Every year we are encouraged to turn over a new leaf, make a New Year's resolution, or review our life and make changes for the better. But what if we started living in the present moment instead of living in the past or the future? What if we accepted life and what it offers as it comes? What if our intention was to embrace each moment with as much gusto as we look forward to the next day off or vacation? I am wondering if we lived this intentionally, would we savor the precious moments we have each day?
I, like a number of my friends, am over the age of fifty and my lived experience continues to change and shape my perspective. I am currently witnessing the life of a dear one slowly slip away. I do not know if I could have embraced this moment when I was younger. I was too busy trying to prove myself. But what if, we really stopped to "smell the roses" this year.
Jesus says, "Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light." (Mt. 11:28)
May we lay our burdens in the arms of Jesus and simply BE.
Sister Clare Carr, OSB
Benet Hill Monastery is very excited to participate in the Colorado Gives Program. Last year Colorado Gives distributed over $12 million to Colorado nonprofits.
This year Colorado Gives Day was held on December 10th. We received a very generous increase in donors and amount of donations and are so grateful!
100% of donations go to Benet Hill Monastery. Thank you to everyone who participated!
