Faith Communities (FAC)

Inspired by our Catholic, Benedictine, and ecumenical heritage, the Faith Communities Ministry at the College of Saint Benedict believes that people of all faiths and backgrounds are created in love, to give and receive love. By joining people of all faiths in community, we seek to bring greater understanding and peace to our campuses and the world. Through respectful dialogue, faith sharing, fellowship, and prayer, we explore the strengths of our common values and the richness of our differences so that we may come to better understand our call to live the mystery of life.
