The Rule of St Benedict Today | Saturday, 12. September 2020

An exploration of the enduring relevance of the Rule of St Benedict

How can we apply the principles of this 'little rule for beginners', written 1500 years ago, to the circumstances of contemporary society? What might the principles of the monastic life say to us today?

The answer might be more than we think.

In this Quiet Day we will explore aspects of the Rule of St Benedict, and the relevance of Benedictine spirituality to everyday life.
