Mission Advancement at Benet Hill

A place of hope and hospitality for the world.

Did you know that a new Colorado State Income Tax refund donation program allows you to use some of your refund to directly support Benet Hill Monastery’s mission to be a place of hope and hospitality for the world? Use our registration number 20093006280 to give when you file!

Note: The Monastery cannot receive confidential taxpayer information and won’t be able to send you a thank you unless you tell us that you donated a portion of your refund. Please do so that we may express our appreciation.

We welcome our newest staff member, Ruth Roland.  Ruth will begin the week of January 6, 2020 as our new Mission Advancement Director. She comes to us after serving 22 years at First Congregational Church, a progressive Christian community.

Ruth has extensive experience in fund development and donor stewardship, and she is excited to be engaging with us through the mission advancement office.

Ruth and her husband will be joining us for our Sunday Eucharist as they get to know the community.


Donors work as one to advance the mission of Benet Hill Monastery through donations of time, talents and treasure.

The sisters rely on generous support to achieve great things, often in quiet ways. Donors participate by praying and serving alongside the sisters and by ministering to them with donations.

Please join those who support the sisters by donating funds and volunteering your time and talent. We invite you to prayerfully explore your options and decide how best you can help.


Thank you!

Donor Appreciation Day

This year our Donor Appreciation Day was separate from our Volunteer Appreciation Day because of the generosity of our donors and volunteers. It is apparent that in the future we will need to do more than one appreciation event. Thank you for your love of the sisters! We look forward to hosting and thanking you again.
