FOR WHOM IS this PROGRAM DESIGNED?
The Monastic Institute designed this program for men and women Benedictines, Trappists and Cistercians who have members to be trained as formators and educators in their communities. The program is for those who wish to enlarge their knowledge of monastic history, spirituality, culture, and the Bible, for work in formation and education. Or, it may be particularly suited to those looking for a sabbatical program. Both lecture and discussion formats offer a rich experience of the monastic tradition and spirituality as it can be lived today.
The instructors hail from different continents and cultures, are experts in theology and trained in Benedictine tradition. In addition to those highlighted below, the program features notables such as Fr. Joel Rippinger, Sr. Manuela Scheiba, Fr. Olivier-Marie Sarr, Fr. Elijah Owens, Br. Thomas Sullivan, and others.
