July News!


Today we are celebrating the feast of St. Benedict. St.Benedict was the founder of the Benedictines. When the Cistercians reformed the Benedictines, they renewed the life but kept the strict observance of the Rule. When the Bernardines were founded, we kept the Rule of St.Benedict as the main Rule which we still follow today.
