Visiting Us > Work

Work is one of the elements of monastic life. Our father Saint Benedict had strongly admonished us about this for he believed that life without a good amount of work is subject to spiritual dangers. In turn we encourage our guests who wish to have a balanced monastic experience to share in the work of the community, if not on all days then at least on some days of their stay. See the posted schedules for the time of the work meeting at which guests receive work assignments.
