General Announcements 

Benedict Inn will offer four sessions on Benedictine spirituality in April

A series of four sessions on Benedictine spirituality will be offered at the Benedict Inn Retreat & Conference Center, 1402 Southern Ave., in Beech Grove, from 7-8:30 p.m. on April 6, 13, 20 and 27.

In a world where pop culture promotes self-love, self-praise and self-promotion, those who practice Benedictine spirituality instead seek inner peace and happiness through the concepts laid out by the Rule of St. Benedict.

Benedictine spirituality is not just for religious living a monastic vocation. This series explores how the centuries-old Rule still applies today and can enhance anyone’s day-to-day spirituality.

Benedictine Sisters Kathleen Yeadon, Julie Sewell, Carol Falkner and Antoinette Purcell will lead the sessions, explaining how to incorporate the Rule into daily life.

The cost for the series of four sessions is $90, or sign up for individual sessions for $25 each.

To register, go to www.benedictinn.org/programs. For specific questions, send an e-mail to benedictinn@benedictinn.org or call 317-788-7581.
