Benedictine Experience at Bishop’s Ranch

October 14, 2018 - October 19, 2018
Washington, DC


Healdsburg, California

October 14 – 19, 2018


What is it that Saint Benedict gives to modern men and women who will never live in monasteries?  His Rule, written 1500 years ago – – a piece of wisdom literature relevant as a guide for people and communities today…

Hopefully you’ll join us at Bishop’s Ranch, with Father David Caffrey, for a new Benedictine Experience focusing on back-to-basics exploration of Saint Benedict as a guide for our present times.  Father Caffrey, who has years of grounding in leading Benedictine groups, will share his understanding of Benedict as the saint who speaks to the challenges of ordinary life.  Benedict’s direction on balance and the integrated life addresses where we live our lives – – in families, communities, parish churches and the workplace.

The Benedictine Experience is a time to refresh your life perspective as you learn about and practice an ancient spiritual framework.  Participants will live the cycle of daily prayer and work, while honoring time for silence, study, manual work and reflection in community.
