“As we progress in this way of life and in faith, we shall run on the path of God’s commandments, our hearts overflowing with the inexpressible delight of love”
– Rule of Saint Benedict Prol.49
The Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Peace strive to live a communal live guided by the Rule of Saint Benedict with an apostolic outreach. Concretely, this means that our life centers around singing the Divine Office in community, with other monastic values of silence, prayerful reading (lectio divina), study and manual labor. At the same time, part time forays to lecture, teach or give retreats in schools or parishes are a positive way we can contribute to building up the Body of Christ through evangelization in the 21st century.
