Living With Values


The Rule of St Benedict and the way of life which grows within and out of the Benedictine-Cistercian way is a rich font of wisdom, not only for monks and nuns of that tradition but for anyone who seriously seeks God and a life lived in service of others.  Today we offer a simple set of values which can be found threaded through the fabric of St Benedict’s Rule. We invite you to consider their place in your life and how they can become better supports for your daily living:


1. Love

2. Prayer

3. Stability

4. Conversion

5. Obedience

6. Discipline

7. Humility

8. Stewardship

9. Hospitality

10. Community
