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.

Trinity Benedictine Monastery


Donate to Trinity Monastery

Trinity Benedictine Monastery in Fujimi, Japan, is a dependent priory of Saint John’s. For over sixty years, this monastery has stood as a symbol of faith in a country where Catholics are one-half of one percent of the total population. The ministry of the monks includes the guest apostolate; service in regional parishes; nursing home chaplaincy; providing a resident priest for the Trappist sisters of Nasu; and offering spiritual direction, pastoral conferences, and retreats to the Christian community of Japan.

Being a member of the Saint John’s community for eight years [during my studies] and witnessing the daily lives of the monastic community instilled in me the Benedictine values of prayer, respect, and hard work. I feel very fortunate and grateful for my time at Saint John’s.
