“The soul feeds on ideas and great ideas are most perfectly expressed in great books.”

Once a month, like a mini retreat, the Ladies of Benedict gather for a refreshing time of learning, fellowship and camaraderie filled with inspiring conversation intent on cultivating wisdom and virtue.  Based upon a close reading of selected literature, discussions center upon timeless truths about human nature offering a mirror for examining one’s own character and society and to illuminate the beauty of everyday life. Through community the Ladies seek to experience God’s truth, goodness, beauty and holiness!

The Ladies of Benedict meet monthly on the second Monday of the month at 6:00 p.m. and hosted by various women of the parish.
