Our Life & Worship

Elizabeth Wright

"In the SSJE Brothers' life I see what can't be taken away. It's what they give away. It gets easier to see with each Brother who enters the choir stall. Slowly, as gradually as the stone wall brightens in the morning, my eyes adjust to the light."

—Elizabeth Wright

We are a community of men giving our whole selves over to living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Rooted in the ancient monastic traditions of prayer and community life, and critically engaged with contemporary culture, we seek to know and share an authentic experience of God’s love and mercy. We live a common life shaped by worship, prayer, and our Rule of Life.

We invite you to explore these pages to learn more about our daily life, our Rule, our worship and our history.
