The SSJE Monastery offers me a sense of security. No matter how busy, or how far away, or how troubled my life might be, I know there is a place in the world where someone is praying, praying for me, and praying for this world. Now and again I look into my memory of my brothers praying their daily office, and I feel a sense of calm.
—Dr. José Hidalgo
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.
