Film SeriesA place of hope and hospitality for the world.
Partnering with the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Institute
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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
