|A Holy Place to Experience God's Peace
Thank you for your interest in the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia who founded St Benedict Monastery in Bristow, Virginia, in 1894.
We particularly appreciate your interest in the activities of the Benedictine Pastoral Center.
The Benedictine Pastoral Center seeks to embody the ideals and qualities that are at the heart of Benedictine tradition: reverence for God and all creation, respect for learning, and the shared experience of prayer, community and hospitality.
Devoted to building the Kingdom of God, the Benedictine Pastoral Center passes on the wisdom of monastic living enriched by 1500 years of tradition by providing opportunities for prayer, contemplation and learning, days of recollection, spiritual direction and retreat programs both for individuals and for groups.
