 Community Plans Retreat

      Beginning Sunday evening, July 9th, our community at St. Benedict Monastery will start its annual retreat.  This five-day period of prayer affords the monks an opportunity to step away from their ordinary routine, taking time to focus more attentively on prayer and become refreshed through the Lordís abiding presence in their lives.

     This year we are very pleased to welcome Fr. Louis Navaratne who will be directing the retreat this year.  Father currently assists at Holy Face Monastery in Clifton New Jersey.  We are looking forward to spending the coming week prayerfully listening to the Lordís voice under his guidance and encouragement.
