St. Benedict stated it best: pray and work. It is through this constant rhythm of prayer and work that we seek to glorify to God. All that we do in our apostolates: at Benedictine College, Maur Hill-Mount Academy, the parishes we serve, and all the other works we are engaged in, is made possible by you. As we come to the end of 2018 we ask that you partner with us in our prayer and work with a financial contribution. Click ‘read more’ to watch the video and to learn more about our mission.
