Benet Hill Monastery was established in Colorado Springs, Colorado as a foundation of Mt. St. Scholastica located in Atchison, Kansas. Benet Hill is rooted in over 1500 years of the Benedictine Tradition was born in the hearts of St. Benedict and St. Scholastica, “To Seek God in community.”
Benet Hill Center has continuously offered an educational and formational curriculum that has empowered thousands of Adult Lay Christians to deepen their Baptismal call to Holiness and the spreading of the Gospel. Heeding the directive of our Vatican II Church and responding to the “Issues of our Day”, Benet Hill has sponsored programs in Sacramental, Scriptural and Liturgical Studies, Contemplative Prayer, Spiritual Direction and Retreats. Programs are open to all Faith Traditions.
Continuing the Benedictine commitment to Lay Formation, these programs are now offered at the Benet Hill Monastery’s Benedictine Spirituality Center, situated in a rural woodland, contemplative setting located in the northeast area of Colorado Springs. In order to extend the spirituality programs to individuals located anywhere in the country who are not able to travel, in 2009 Ministry Center staff developed ministry programs to be presented on-line through distance learning technology.
