Are you longing to be part of a Christian Community with other young adults?
Are you hoping to deepen your prayer life?
Are you seeking to serve the poor, the hungry, the marginalized?
Are you willing to practice simple, sustainable gardening and living?

If you answered “yes” to these questions, consider applying to the Benedictine Service Corps!

The Benedictine Service Corps is a yearlong program for young adults seeking to grow and be formed through Benedictine Spirituality. Members will pray with the monastic community at Incarnation Monastery, work with non-profits and churches in the City of Omaha, and live in Christian community with other young adults.

A commitment to the Corps will run from late August through the end of June each year. Housing, food, utilities, some transportation, and a stipend will be provided to those accepted into the Benedictine Service Corps.

Corps members will live at St. Benedict’s House in Omaha, Nebraska.

The Rule of Benedict teaches us how to live in peace with one another, how to listen to God and one another more deeply, and how to live a life of service. We invite you to consider joining this growing movement of young Christians who wish to connect more fully with God, with other Christians and with Creation. We hope you will discern a one year commitment to the Benedictine Service Corps. If you are interested in applying for the Benedictine Service Corps, please fill out our Application Form.

 

*Applications for the 2019-2020 year in the Benedictine Service Corps are now closed.
