About Us

We are 60+ Benedictine women, seeking God in cenobitic community. We are called to respond from a contemplative stance to the significant needs of the times--in a spirit of healing hospitality, grateful simplicity, and creative peace-making.

We offer a dynamic retreat ministry with a variety of programs that combine well with our beautiful mountain setting. Our Gospel reflection service, available by subscription, "From the Monastery Well," offers challenging yet concise commentary on the daily Gospel.

Other ministries of sisters include counseling, parish leadership, liturgical leadership, spiritual direction, teaching, chaplaincy and a variety of health-care ministries. All of these support our basic call to share life as we seek God together following the ancient yet contemporary Rule of St. Benedict.
