The Omaha-based monastery The Benedictine Way moved across Nebraska for nine days to host a residency in the town of Chadron from Jan. 28 through Feb. 5 at Grace Episcopal Church.

“We want to share the peace and joy of our contemplative way of life with the people of Chadron and the entire panhandle,” said Br. James Dowd, Prior of Incarnation Monastery and The Benedictine Way. Benedictine spirituality is unique expression of Christian faith, centered on prayer, service to the poor and forgotten, and life in Christian community.

The Benedictine Way is an open and affirming community of people based in Omaha. Included in the community are the monks of Incarnation Monastery, Oblates (non-monastic members of the community), and young adult Service Corps members. The Benedictine Way residency in Chadron included prayer, special services, and connecting with students at Chadron State University.
