Benedictine Monks of St. Bede's Abbey

Vocation Director - Father Ronald Margherio, OSB
Our primary purpose is simply to seek God by listening carefully to his word throughout our lives and responding to it with obedience and generosity. We seek to achieve the goal of holiness by withdrawal into relative solitude and the practice of celibacy to follow a simple and austere way of life that is marked by obedience, silence, humility, simplicity, prayerfulness, work, patience, perseverance in the same community, and fraternal charity.
