Benedictine Experience Opportunities
The Benedictine Experience takes place each year in a number of special places around the United States and England.  Each Experience offers an opportunity to live the rhythm of Benedictine life for a few days in a "thin place" where God's presence seems very near. Each offers a chance to explore Benedictine values such as humility, stability, and listening. Every day, rich in silence, offers the distinctive balance of time for prayer, study, work, and rest. Two Benedictine Experiences are coming up in June:
  • Bishop's Ranch, Healdsburg, California, June 22-29, 2015:  This is truly a "thin place," with beautiful views of the surrounding vineyards and hills.  We will learn from conferences by Sr. Mary Donald Corcoran, OSB as well as Fr. James Knutsen and Fr. Robert Hale, OSB.  Sacred music helps us build a Benedictine community of constant prayer with John Renke as musical director.
  • Canterbury Cathedral, June 22-29, 2015:  We will stay at the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge, within the Precincts of the Cathedral.  In this splendid and sacred space, we will join the Cathedral community in Morning Prayer, Eucharist, and Evening Prayer each day, often with the Cathedral choir.  Our spiritual director is Abbot Stuart Burns, OSB, who is the abbot of a growing community of Benedictine brothers and sisters at Mucknell Abbey in Worcestershire.
