Benedictine Values

Sister Ann Kessler, a longtime MMC professor, wrote the book Benedictine Men and Women of Courage. She described the Benedictine Rule as a pursuit, “of personal and communal peace by living the Benedictine way of life. Moderation is the key.” 

Though St. Benedict lived 1,500 years ago — beginning his teachings in a cave before founding religious communities — his beliefs and values have never become outdated. Major tenets are justice, truthfulness, service to others, hospitality, respect and dignity — all centered with an awareness of God.

We aspire to St. Benedict’s teachings at Mount Marty College.
