 Benedictine Sisters of St. Emma Monastery

Mission: Spirituality is our response to the Holy Spirit, a synergy of things we can discern and other that only God knows. St. Benedict provides a set of fundamentals for this lifelong journey: the Rule of St. Benedict, the liturgy of the hours, Lectio Divina and the Eucharist.
