A Way of Living

We are women living out our baptismal promises in this faith community whose lives are guided by the Gospel and the Rule of St. Benedict. Benedict says " Listen with the ear of your heart." (RB Prol.)

Growing, changing, struggling, daring...we share in Christian Community with friends, Oblates and Associates. Through prayer and dialogue we witness to  ecumenical hospitality knowing  that we often learn most from those we seek to serve.

Our intent is to live a viable monastic life and to be a Benedictine presence among the people on Vancouver Island. Each sister of the House of Bread offers a unique expression of that presence in her personal life.

Our Benedictine spirituality calls us live the paschal mystery,to open ourselves to  growth and change. We need the support of community and the  challenge, wisdom and humor of each other to deepen our faith and to  grow in respect and love for self, others,our environment, and for the God who loves us with an everlasting love.
