The LCSB is a lay-led, inter-generational, and ecumenical Benedictine community engaged with the world, with a mission and outreach to all. We invite you to celebrate St Benedict Week in the company of a rich diversity of Benedictine communities, around the feast on 11th July.
Benedictine communities throughout the UK invite you to pray the Office of the Church in person or online - details are available on the Divine Office page.
A novena to St Benedict is available to be prayed throughout the nine days of St Benedict week.
9th July 8pm - Dom Christopher Jamison - Abbot President of the English Benedictine Congregation, author, speaker.
11th July 8pm - Mary Hirst - young lay Benedictine, Discipleship Coordinator of the LCSB and promised member of the Manquehue Movement.
16th July 6.30pm - Anne Clarke OSB - Abbess of Malling Abbey whose passion for the healing of people and planet led her to embrace a contemplative path.
Every Benedictine community is a unique flowering of the Holy Spirit - we invite all Benedictine communities to share photos of any way in which they come together in community to celebrate the feast of St Benedict.
Listen to podcasts, enjoy blogs
Podcasts and blogs with monks, lay Benedictines, writers, educators and others inspired by St Benedict will be released throughout St Benedict week.
"I warmly endorse the celebration of the Benedictine way of living the Gospel. Blogs, talks and podcasts will highlight the inspiration that St Benedict brings to people's lives today, while community events and times of prayer will enable active participation in this way of life. St Benedict says that guests are to be received with humanity and humility, two qualities that I hope will characterise the experience of those taking part in the week."
Dom Christopher Jamison, Abbot President of the English Benedictine Congregation
