The community founded in St Mark's, Fitzroy, in the Diocese of Melbourne. The first two monks were clothed on the 8th November 1975. After 5 years, they adopted the Rule of Saint Benedict and in Camperdown are a monastic house.
In each of our houses, prayer is at the heart of full and active lives: preaching, teaching, cooking, gardening, psychotherapy, Spiritual Direction, working with women on the streets... we serve as we are called.
At the Monastery of St Benedict, in Arcadia, New South Wales, we live out the ideals and inspirations of St Benedict. We are a group of Christian men, living together in community, supporting each other in our search for God through prayer, work, study and mutual co-operation.
The Sisters also conduct regular quiet days and retreats which are open to members of the public. Attendees can enjoy a day of quiet prayer in the Sister's Chapel and the beautiful gardens surrounding Community House.
