Friends of St. Benedict
Friends of St. Benedict is a group of parishioners who meet twice a month for prayer and study.
This group meets twice a month for morning prayer and spiritual study along with Saturday morning Mass in St. Mary's Chapel. Our focus is on applying Benedictine values (listening, hospitality, stewardship, ongoing conversion of life) to secular life (outside of a monastery). We know that Holy Scripture has all of the information needed to live by; as such we strive to apply his rules in the world, that is, we are not Monks nor Nuns. Most of our members are Oblates (affiliate members) of St. Benedict's Abbey in Bartonville, Illinois.
