Mission Statement

We exist to say "Yes" to all that God asks of us and to faithfully respond to His grace.  In this way we desire to daily grow in holiness, to witness to the Gospel and to serve the kingdom of God.

We exist to serve in love the people God places in our path and to follow the admonition of St. Benedict to receive as Christ all who enter our gate.  Our family, friends, co-workers, those who come for spiritual direction and for retreat form the community in which we share our needs, burdens and desire for God.

 Within this community we share prayer, offer a listening heart and make ourselves available as companions on the journey.  We strive to provide both the physical and emotional space to enter into silence and so to hear the still small voice of God.

 This we strive to do in order to realize a community in which the inner Kingdom of God is established and the Spirit's gifts of peace, joy and fraternity reign in the hearts of all.
