Statio Hiberna (Winter Stasis)
Join classical guitarist, Colin McAllister, for solo program of contemplation and reflection…statio hiberna celebrates the stages of the winter season…its approach through the darkening of autumn, its long stasis of contemplative quiet, and its departure via the emergence of life in spring. At the heart of this program is composer Derek Keller’s The End Times are a ‘Changin’, a multimedia experience for guitar, electronics and video that asks us to reflect upon the images and writings of the twelfth century theologian Joachim of Fiore, as well as the end of time and our own relationship to it.
Announcement: Monastery Closed
The Sisters of Benet Hill Monastery are committed to providing a place of hope and hospitality, as well as a safe and healthy environment for everyone. As we learn more about the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), our primary concern is for the welfare of our sisters who live here and for staff members. Currently, no sister or staff member is infected with the virus. We ask for your patience and understanding as we take steps to protect and prevent the spread of this virus to our most vulnerable. Therefore, THE MONASTERY IS CLOSED and we are suspending all activities at the monastery including Sunday Liturgy, retreats, classes, films, concerts, tours, spiritual direction, 12 Step meeting and all other events through April 4, 2020. We will re-evaluate the situation at that time and keep you informed of changes.
As always, we continue to pray for you and ask for your prayers during this uncertain time. Please send any special prayer intentions to email@example.com, knowing that we pray three times a day for your concerns. May we all remember the unconditional love of our God.
Blessings and Peace,
Sister Clare Carr, Prioress
