For more than 1500 years, the Benedictine way of life has drawn its practitioners closer to Christ. This workshop will introduce students to the foundations of Benedictine spirituality. We will focus especially the vows of Benedictine monasticism (stability, obedience, and fidelity to the monastic way of life) and the Benedictine practice of prayer and work (ora et labora). Additional course work required for credit.
