Theological Foundations

Theological and Spiritual Foundations of the Federation

As communities of women in the Federation of Saint Benedict, we are rooted in the common experience of humanity. As members of the Church we grow in relationship with God and one another. We follow Christ in the cenobitic monastic tradition according to the Rule of Saint Benedict. Committed to Benedictine life through our monastic profession, we seek with all other faithful Christians to hasten the coming of the kingdom of God in its fullness.
