A New and Upcoming Initiative for the Center: Benedictine Days!
Excitement is mounting at the Monastery about our new initiative entitled, Benedictine Days. We here at the Center believe that every day is a Benedictine day, so what is this new initiative all about? Benedictine Days are our way of reaching out to the world with a very specific purpose in mind: to infuse the world with the Benedictine spirit. We believe that the Benedictine spirit is a necessary and critical need for our society and our world in this moment today, and so we are hosting three or four events each year to address this need. With a lineup of insightful, lively presenters, we will gather for presentations and discussion on one or more Benedictine values and how they interface with problems and issues that impact all of us, locally and globally. Why do the Benedictine values matter and how do they matter in our world? Thought-provoking conversation and enjoyable food, nourishing our bodies and our souls, will set the tone for these events. We hope to engage old friends, as well as bring new faces through the doors of the Monastery to experience the gift of this Community and all of Benedictine life!
Come and encounter the power of the Benedictine spirit for ourselves and for our world…
