Orthodox Benedictine Canons

Orthodox (orth-u-docks): Right belief, right worship. Of that Church founded by Jesus, holding to the canons of the seven Ecumenical Councils.

Benedictine (ben-u-dic-teen): Of the Order formed by St. Benedict of Nursia in A.D.480. A follower of the Rule established by St. Benedict.

Canon (can-un): A member of the clergy attatched to a Cathedral or living by a Rule of Life.

The Orthodox Benedictine Canons are, as stated in the prologue to the Rule, "a school of Christian perfection." We aspire to grow into the very image of God. Theosis. "Be ye perfect, even as your Father in Heaven is perfect."

Walk with us. Pray with us. Study the Rule. Live the Gospel.
