PRIESTS’ RETREAT: Thriving in the Call of God

Monday, November 13 – Friday, November 17, 2023

These days together will explore those elements of our spiritual and ministerial life that bring deep fulfillment and soul satisfaction: prayer, mindfulness, personal presence to others, joy in the celebration of the Eucharist and the Sacraments, and the remembering of all God's good gifts.


Father Francis Benedict has been a monk of Valyermo since 1967.   He earned an MA in Philosophy from Loyola-Marymount University and an MS in Theology from Mt. Angel in Oregon.  He was ordained a priest in 1976.  He served as the Abbey's abbot for 16 years.  His special areas of ministry include spiritual direction, preaching retreats, and working with 12-step recovery groups.  In addition to many responsibilities at the Abbey, he now serves as the Director of Oblates.
