Center Offerings

St. Walburg Monastery, located on a hill in Northern Kentucky, overlooks the Ohio River. From this place of natural beauty the Benedictine Sisters extend hospitality to all guests seeking peace and a rediscovery of the sacred in life. Sharing the wisdom of the Catholic Church and the Benedictine tradition, the community provides time and space for prayer and silence. We offer a variety of opportunities for those who seek a deeper relationship with God and a renewed sense of mission.

The Center of Spirituality is pleased to announce our spring speaker. Mark your calendars for the morning of Saturday, March 23, 2024 when Sr. Tonette Sperando, OSB will be here to speak on “Hospitality: A Gospel Way of Living.” Sr. Tonette’s enthusiasm and southern charm will be sure to inspire!
