Welcome from the Pastor

Welcome to the St. Benedict Parish Family!  Like any other family, we are not perfect, but strive to be present to each other.  Through the many ministries, clubs and organizations, we find strength in community to face life’s challenges together.  Secondly, as a community of faith, we seek to imitate Jesus in service to those in need.

St. Benedict Parish had very humble beginnings in a monastery farm house, with three resident Benedictine monks and about 50 families.  As St. Benedict grew, it would hold dear the memories of its small community.  Today we are over 900 family strong and continue to maintain a close country family atmosphere of caring for each other. 

No matter where you come from, what your background is or who you are, you are always welcome here–because you’re family.

Parish Mission

We the Parish of St. Benedict, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and our patron St. Benedict, are a vibrant, worshipping and welcoming community of God. The strength of our people is obtained through joyful celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Our commitment is to promote the Gospel of the Lord through our prayers, with words, and actions with Jesus as our guiding light
