Creating a Threshold
by Sam Rahberg, Director
The Benedictine Center of St. Paul’s Monastery has been creating a threshold between the monastic community and the wider world since 1983.
The founding vision was developed
in the wake of Vatican II and in response to the kinds of needs that we recognize even thirty years later—quiet, peace, and Benedictine insight.
Visionaries like S. Veronica Novotny OSB (d. 1996), a spiritual director and member of St. Paul’s Monastery, imagined Sisters and spiritual seekers being brought together around
the Rule of St. Benedict.
Come…enjoy solitude, spiritual conversation, study, or discernment. In doing so, you join many pilgrims renewed by the monastic heritage of St. Paul’s Monastery.
Guests to St. Paul’s Monastery often say, “I find myself looking for something more” as they describe what has led them to the Benedictine Center.
To explore the resources available to you through St. Paul’s Monastery, browse this website, plan a visit, and contact the Benedictine Center.
