“St Benedict’s is different from other service organizations.  You see, I had no fear I would be banished or denied service.”

“I’ve had a number of health care problems, some major and some minor, but St Benedict’s has always been there to help out.”

Accessible health care and healing is a human right. We work for a community where health and healing are available to all.
