Saint Benedict Institute

An intensive study for young men pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies; hosted by the Benedictines of Saint Benedict Abbey, Still River, Massachusetts.

Masters of Monastic Tradition:

Saint Augustine

August 19-25, 2018


In August, we held Saint Benedict Institute’s first week-long program on Catholic spiritual masters with the study of St. Augustine. We thank Drs. Mark J. Clark and Timothy B. Noone of the schools of theology and philosophy of The Catholic University of America for making the inaugural seminar a success. Fifteen young men attended. Participants and the professors also received an introduction to monastic life by joining the monks during prayer, meals, conversation, and recreation.

We thank all who attended and hope that they were inspired by the life St. Augustine and enjoyed a monastic experience at Saint Benedict Abbey.
