Something More

by Sam Rahberg, Director

Guests to St. Paul’s Monastery often say, “I find myself looking for something more” as they describe what has led them to the Benedictine Center.

Individuals may have noticed themselves to be frazzled and stretched or restless and full of questions. "Something more" seems to capture the impulse that draws them toward spiritual direction, a private retreat, or conversations with others about how spiritual things unfold into everyday life.

The monastic way of life creates both a rhythm and a sense of companionship that undergirds our common desire to be and to live in deeper relationship with God. Guests come to the monastery, not because Sisters and staff provide all the answers, but because those who seek “something more” feel at home here.

To explore the resources available to you through St. Paul’s Monastery, browse this website, plan a visit, and contact the Benedictine Center. God may just be inviting you to “something more.”
