Fr Ralph at the Saint Benedict Festival 2018

Saint Benedict Festival

Saturday, July 13, 2019

An annual celebration of monastic culture scheduled near the Feast of Saint Benedict, the spiritual father of monks. Join the monastic community for beautiful liturgy and live music.

Attend special tours, try beer — from our own Benedictine Brewery — and fine local wines. Bid on auction items featuring monastic-themed events and enjoy a farm-to-fork picnic lunch. Monks also challenge you to a laid back game of Bocce or Croquet.

Christian in the World Lecture Series

Spirituality and theology for the laity. The Christian in the World Lecture Series is an integrated program of study, prayer and discussion for Catholics who want to live their faith more deeply. The program seeks to help participants gain a more profound understanding of the Scriptures and the Church, and to support lay people in exploring how to live their baptismal vocation in everyday life.
