Ora et labora (pray and work), the motto of the
Benedictines, stresses the importance of prayer and work, and the balance and
interplay between the two. Members of the monastic community are
encouraged to work in jobs within their competence which do not conflict with
community life and prayer.
We do a limited amount of individual spiritual
direction on an appointment basis. If you are looking for a spiritual
director, please write to the Guestmaster
here, and we shall be happy to arrange an individual appointment.
