Fr. Godfrey Mullen

Very Rev. Godfrey Mullen, OSB

Saint Benedict starts his holy Rule with the word Listen. Listening is one of the surest marks of the true disciple, especially in the Benedictine tradition. We listen even though we do not necessarily hear the sounds of a human voice in response. Listening keeps us humble – awaiting the command of the master, the Lord. Listening keeps us attentive – instead of always telling God what He needs to do, we hear the subtlest nudging toward a life of virtue and grace. Listening keeps us receptive – waiting for the gentlest response in the still, small voice. Let’s listen for the Lord and we will not be disappointed.

I hope our temporary website answers any questions you have about our parish. Please contact us if you have other questions (see our contact information to the right). You might also check out and “like” our Facebook page for more information about St. Ben’s activities.

May God bless us all and draw us all together to everlasting life!
