Locating the interior monastic is the theme of a webinar to stream live from Mount Angel Abbey Saturday, May 8, 2 p.m.-3 p.m.

With so many people at home more during the pandemic, the abbey wanted to offer wisdom from the 1,500-year-old “Rule” of St. Benedict, a founding document of western monasticism. The wisdom can apply to any life, monks say.

The panel presentation includes two monks — Abbot Peter Eberle and Brother Thomas Buttrick, plus Benedictine oblates Suzanne Kaufmann, Jeff Thompson and Maizie Redner. Oblates seek to live Benedictine life at their homes outside the monastery. Benedictine Brother Israel Sanchez will be the moderator.

The session is part of the spring Christian in the World series. A chat room will be open for viewers to comment and ask questions of the panelists. There is no charge.
