“For I do not wish to see you now just in passing,

but I hope to spend some time with you,

if the Lord permits.”

1 Corinthians 16:7


Welcome to Saint Benedict parish. As the famous Rule of our patron reminds us, “Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ.” I am pleased that you have arrived at this website.


Here, with just a few clicks of the mouse, you can learn more about the parish, the great things taking place, and how to get involved. You can also read Sunday’s homily and have a look at the bulletin.


I invite you to visit in person by attending Mass. The parish strives to uphold the motto of the order founded by St. Benedict: ut in omnibus glorificetur Deus. May this truth resound in your life: “that in all things God may be glorified” (1 Peter 4:11).
