The blog of the Contemplative Benedictine Nuns of the Abbey of St Walburga


The Abbey of St. Walburga is a small community of Benedictine contemplative nuns of the Roman Catholic Church. We are located in a valley in northern Colorado, where the high plains meet the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. As contemplative nuns, our primary duty for the Church is to pray the full Divine Office. The goal of our life is union with God, seeking Him in community according to the Gospel and under the inspiration of the Rule of St. Benedict. We devote much of our day to the Word of God, through lectio divina and in liturgical prayer (the Divine Office). This life of prayer bears fruit in hospitality, providing an opportunity for people to be in an atmosphere where they can find God. All of our daily work, whether in direct service to others or undertaken for the financial support of our community, is also offered to the glory of God.
