A Message from the Director

The times in which we live are deeply uncertain on many levels: it often seems as if our world, our society, and our Church are being assailed by unexpected and unpredictable tempests. In such conditions, the inner life of the spirit is of paramount importance. Amidst the turbulent fluctuations of passing material things, the human heart is increasingly drawn to eternal realities—God, the soul, and the love which is both the means and goal of our final and everlasting salvation. Our need for God has never been greater. For, in the words of Pope Francis, “God is the light that illuminates the darkness, and a spark of divine light is within each of us.”

In 2022, we are excited to offer a varied and stimulating range of retreats and study weekends. In keeping with the Benedictine charism of hospitality, the monastic community is delighted to welcome as our guests persons from all backgrounds of life. Our tranquil and scenic environment and the quiet prayerfulness of the monastic routine form the perfect setting for seeking peace, enlightenment, renewal and clarity.

In pace Christi,

Fr. Robert Nixon, osb
