Eighteen of our Campus Ministry Leaders had the unique privilege of attending a workshop with Sister Mariette at the Benedictine Spirituality Center of St. Walburga Monastery. The students inclined the ear of their hearts to Sister as she shared her insights and wisdom to the inner workings of the Rule of St. Benedict. "The love of Christ" comes before all else... humility is the staircase to heaven ... obedience means listening to the One who loves you and cares for you. Following our Lord's example, they broke bread together (shared pizza and cookies), laughed together, performed skits of the various parts of the Rule, and ended with joining the Benedictine Sisters in Chapel for Vespers. It was a fun and worthwhile experience for all.
Benedictine Academy is more than a school community. We are members of the Benedictine Family. This Tuesday, our Freshmen Students will be taking a personalized tour of the St. Walburga Monastery. Know we carry all of our families and friends in our hearts and pray for you each day.
