Visit the catacombs
Benedictines of Priscilla
Write us
strive to live the spirit of the first Christian communities. Following the Rule of St. Benedict they lead a life of "Ora et Labora" (Pray and Work) in unity and joy at the service of the Church.
The Sisters make Christ the center of their life with a daily schedule organized around the Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, Lectio Divina and personal prayer.
As they guide visitors through the catacomb the Benedictines provide them with an opportunity to feel and see first hand the faith that animated the earliest Christian communities.
Loyal to the spirit of Vatican II the Benedictines of Priscilla offer a place for encounters and fraternal communion to the faithful of all denominations. Many representatives of sister Churches gather in pilgrimage at the catacombs to find the roots of one common faith.
The sisters operate a photography laboratory at the service of sacred archaeology.
With the production of liturgical vestments the Benedictines of Priscilla collaborate with priests throughout the world.
The sisters organize and assist with retreats and days of prayer in their retreat house at Montefiolo as well as in their monasteries at Rome and San Felice Circeo. They welcome women who would like to make a monastic experience in their community.
