"Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ."
Rule of Holy Father Saint Benedict, Chapter 53
Benedictines consider hospitality and welcoming guests as
a very important part of monastic life. Since no physical monastery exists for the
Our Lady of Refuge community, there are also no facilities to lodge guests at this time. The vision
for this future monastic establishment intends to provide lodgings for a few over night guests
as well as suitable arrangements for visitors who come to pray and worship on the property
outside the monastic enclosure.
Please pray through the intercession of Saint Joseph, that the ideal site will be purchased very soon!
