Living together in a Benedictine monastic community has deepened our appreciation of the values that are at the heart of our tradition and way of life.

The monastic way continually calls us:
  • to create a community of love, as an alternative to isolation;
  • to be persons of prayer and reflection, as an alternative to meaninglessness;
  • to offer hospitality to each other and to our visitors, as an alternative to prejudice and division;
  • to share in humanly dignifying work, as an alternative to work that is alienating and impersonal;
  • to live as a sign of the Beatitudes—non-violence, joy, justice, and peace—for the healing of our suffering world.
We have always tried to offer opportunities for others to experience the living of these values. Visitors to our monastery are usually welcome in our guest houses for a stay of a few days to a week.

We are now offering an opportunity for a more focused stay to a group of young men. We hope to share together with them the experience and values of living with meaning and hope as members of our contemporary society.

If you are in your early twenties to mid-forties, whatever your background, and would like to know more about community life and values -- as we live them here at Weston Priory -- we invite you to consider living for a week with our monastic community.
