An excerpt from the brochure:
This is a time designed for those who wish to nurture and strengthen their daily lives through prayer and spiritual companionship—young and old, active and retired, laity and clergy. The Experience is modeled after the balanced way of life set out by St. Benedict in the Rule, giving due attention to body, mind, and spirit. The Experience provides a framework for growth in personal faith and support for bearing witness to Christ at home, work, and church.
Participants through an ordered are led Benedictine prayer, study, work and leisure by the Steward of the House of Prayer, The Rev. Ward Bauman, and Friends of St. Benedict Executive Director, Kurt Aschermann.
