A balanced life of prayer and work...

The Rule of St. Benedict survives today as a masterpiece of spiritual wisdom. Saint Benedict envisioned a balanced life of prayer and work as the ideal.

Our summers are an opportunity to develop our common life as well as manual work in the apostolate. Assisting the Marianists in the upkeep of the schools are faculty, graduates and current students.
