How Four Essential Practices Make Them Thrive“An insightful look at what is going right in those parishes that are successfully nourishing their spiritual families.”
A Learning Community is a group of no more than twelve pastors and pastoral teams from diverse regions of the country who are leading vibrant parishes. A Learning Community is not a program or a one-time conference, rather it is a unique process that challenges some of the best minds in parish ministry to think beyond their current reality, learn from one another, and impact the way parish is experienced in the Church today.
Guided by the Gospel and strengthened by the Eucharist, we the Catholic people of St. Benedict worship God with joy, excitement and commitment. We welcome and reach out to each other and those beyond our community. Challenged by our call to receive God’s gifts gratefully; nurture God’s gifts responsibly; share God’s gifts generously and return God’s gifts with increase. Living our faith in Jesus Christ, we spread the Good News by providing hope, spirituality, education, hospitality, and social justice.
