Sharing the Wisdom of Benedictine Spirituality
The Sisters of St. Paul’s Monastery remain convinced
A Vision For Benedictine Retreat Ministry
Since its founding in 1983, the Benedictine Center has carried forward the values envisioned by its founder, S. Veronica Novotny OSB: reverence for God, reverence for creation, hospitality toward all, beauty and simplicity, silence and prayer.
S. Veronica believed these values create a setting for those who seek to gain a deeper awareness of God, a greater understanding of self, and a special love for one another and the unity of all persons.
