The purpose and goal of our men''s Benedictine Monastery is to provide an environment in which men can seekGod and live a deeply interior life of prayer and sacrifice.  From thatdeep inner life comes a life of hospitality to all who come to theMonastery.  We provide some rooms for resident guests who wish to sharedeeply in our life.  The purpose is not to convert or change our guests,but simply to reflect the divine love that is given to us.  From thisfreedom much change comes.  Our goal is to make the spiritual life soattractive by our way of living that others will want to live a more spirituallife.  Our personal purposes are to serve God and all His people and Hiscreation with total dedication in this way of life.

Many who have no faith orbelief also come to our Monastery.  Our purpose and goal for them issimply to provide a place of deep silence by which they can come to knowthemselves better and be refreshed to return to their normal lives with moreenergy.


A monastery is a place tomeet God in silence, to encounter God, who is present everywhere.  Themonk is a man of prayer, and one who draws others to God by the way helives.  We invite visitors of all faiths or no particular faith to come tobe still and listen, to be refreshed and restored on their life’s journey.
