Solidarity with the Benedictine Community As They Rebuild in Italy

We at CMSM extend our thoughts and prayers to the Benedictine community in Norcia, Italy, as well as to the Benedictines throughout the world and in our nation as they begin to recover from the devastating loss suffered in the October 30, 2016 magnitude 6.6 earthquake which leveled their historic basilica and monastery built above the birthplace of St. Benedict. We will be attentive to the news as it develops and follow up as we are able. We invite all of our members and all people to remember the Benedictine community in prayer.
