Worship & Work

Deep calls to Deep

At the heart of the 1500 year Benedictine spiritual tradition, "Worship and Work" succinctly describes the daily rhythm and spiritual dynamic of the monks of the Order of Saint Benedict.

A vocation to Worship, the first Work of the Benedictine monks is Worship. The Benedictine Work of Worship; the liturgy of the hours, daily Mass, and the ancient tradition of lectio divina, strives to serve to the spiritual need of the world and Church.

Daily Work among the Benedictine monks articulates and punctuates the spiritual life of the community, giving physical expression to the spiritual fruits of a life of Worship.

Worship inspires Work. 
Work reveals Worship.

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is the process of sharing our faith story: our life experience in relation to God, others, and oneself, with a trained spiritual guide.  Spiritual direction is not psychotherapy nor counseling. The goal is to hear the voice of God in our everyday life.

Spiritual direction has always played a fundamental role in monastic life. Traditionally, monks sought a spiritual director for wisdom and guidance in their monastic vocation and pursuit of God through worship, work, and reading of Scripture. Spiritual direction offers a place to explore prayer practices, meditation, spiritual experiences, and tools for discerning the will of God.

Each spiritual direction session lasts approximately one hour.
