Listening with the ear of the heart
A welcoming experience
A Benedictine monastery for today's world
We do things a bit differently
We are all seeking something
Where are you on your spiritual journey?
Accepted exactly as you are
When Tyler interviewed with Sister Mary Colleen for the Benedictine Spiritual Director Training Program, he was astonished that she wanted him in the program. He remembers extending his arms out to her skeptically, “You want me? With all these tattoos?” Mary Colleen just smiled and answered, “Each one of your tattoos is a story, right? I want to hear them all.”
What it means to be truly welcoming
Benedictine women have extended hospitality to strangers arriving at monastery doors for over 1,500 years. More than a foundational principle, this welcoming spirit is a daily practice here at Benet Hill.
More than buzzwords
We’ve all heard of faith communities that shout “All are welcome!” followed by “We love the sinner but hate the sin!” That doesn’t sound truly welcoming to us.
Welcoming in action:
Where nature meets spirit
If your spirit simply needs a walk in the forest, we invite you to visit the grounds during daylight hours. There’s no need to check-in with us. Come and be.
