“Prefer nothing whatever to Christ!”
St. Benedict

As a monastery, we pray that we may be an instrument of God’s shepherding through our life of prayer and work. We know that loneliness and isolation from God and others are major problems in many peoples’ lives. Our life together is meant to be a partial remedy for this challenge, a witness of a faith community. The name of Jesus, as the Good Shepherd, is therefore the name we have chosen.
