Mortgage Pay Off Campaign - PAID OFF!!

We reached our goal due to very generous donations.  Praise God, we now have our mortgage paid off.

Welcome to Saint Benedict's Abbey

Saint Benedict's is not just a monastery, it is so much more. 
We are a thriving, loving church filled with people seeking and serving God, dedicated to helping our community. We are an ecumenical community, which means that we pray and work for the unity of all Christians.  All baptized Christians who are duly prepared are welcome to receive communion.

We have many diverse ministries within our walls where people utilize their gifts and talents:

God has given them to assist others with spiritual or personal needs.

Please come to visit us.  We would love to meet you and your family. If you are looking for a church home I think you will find Saint Benedict is a safe and loving haven…..  Peace.
