Chapel Windows III: Commitment

Commitment

The Benedictine charism is to seek God as members of a cenobitic community and to respond through prayer and ministry. This charism is reflected in symbol in the beautiful stained glass windows in our chapel.

COMMITMENT

Commitment is symbolized by a lily, a cord, and coin.

Our baptismal call to holiness is strengthened by monastic profession. The Benedictine community shares the call to total dedication to God, through poverty, obedience and conversion of life.

Let nothing be preferred to the Work of God – Rule of Benedict 43:3
