Description

Built in 1965 and remodled in 2006, Saint Benedict The Abbot Church is a handsome contemporary brick building that echoes the look of traditional churches including an impressive steeple.

The church is named in honor of Saint Benedict The Abbot, who is known as the patriarch of western monasticism. He was born approximately 480 CE and built twelve monasteries including the world-famous Abbey of Monte Cassino where he stayed the remainder of his life and wrote "The Rule", the code which was to dominate western religious life for 600 years.

St. Benedict's mission is to foster liturgy, prayer, service and hospitality in the spirit of their patron. They are committed to receiving all as Christ as we strive to grow in faith, hope and charity.

The church's facilities include a social hall where various church and community events are held.
