The Way of Saint Benedict

We have chosen to orient our shared life around the Benedictine way of following Christ – with its pillars of daily prayer, work by the labor of our hands, and study and growth in the life of body, soul and spirit.  Our hope is that this way of life can be an offering of peace, however small, to a world in tumult.  We envision ours as a working experiment of family life lived with simplicity, stewardship, and spiritual abundance that provides a joyful alternative to the dominant culture of consumerism and isolation.

In the future, we envision sharing this way with other couples, families, and singles in community life.  We also envision expanding our retreat offerings into a residential school of Christian transformation, where we work together with students to recover, teach, and live the full richness of the Christian contemplative path.
