    Witness of Love

    "As a spiritual oasis, a monastery reminds today's world of the most important, and indeed, in the end, the only decisive thing: that there is an ultimate reason why life is worth living: God and his unfathomable love." -Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

    Come & Worship

We should glory in the cross of our Lord, Jesus Christ in whom is our salvation, our life, and our resurrection. Through Him we are saved and made free.
