What are 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…

Benedictine Days

Due to the Covid19 pandemic and the need to ensure the safety of all, we are unable to gather for our usual Benedictine Days series in person at St. Scholastica Monastery. Instead, we invite you to our new, interactive, monthly Zoom gatherings entitled Benedictine Conversations. Each month will feature a guest who will help us explore the Benedictine legacy in our world today!

**There is no fee for Benedictine Days events, but gifts to support the Center for Spirituality and Enrichment (a ministry of the Sisters of St. Scholastica) are gratefully accepted.

(Average cost per person is $35 to provide Benedictine Days events)

Register early, as space is limited.

Please call (218) 723-6699 if you have need of overnight acccommodations.
