HOUSEHOLDS SCHOOLS OF THE LORD'S SERVICE
“Therefore we intend to establish a school for the Lord's service. In drawing up its regulations, we hope to set down nothing harsh, nothing burdensome. The good of all concerned, however, may prompt us to a little strictness in order to amend faults and to safeguard love. Do not be daunted immediately by fear and run away from the road that leads to salvation. It is bound to be narrow at the outset.” – Rule of St. Benedict (Prologue 45-48)
A household is a group of students who live, pray, and work together. There are currently two men's and two women's households on Benedictine's campus that are led by St. Paul's Outreach missionaries. Contact our Benedictine College St. Paul's Outreach Missionaries for more information.
ST. PAUL'S OUTREACH
Saint Paul’s Outreach actively invites college students to a life of Christian discipleship. With Saint Paul as our example, we create vibrant, faith-filled environments that challenge students to deepen their relationships with Christ in the fullness of the Catholic Church. To learn more, see the SPO website.
