Category: Saint Benedict Center in Richmond, New Hampshire

The original Saint Benedict Center was in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and flourished in the 1940s and 50s. The founders relocated to Harvard (Still River) Massachusetts in 1958. In 1988, Brother Francis, Sister Marie Louise, and a handful of other religious moved from Bolton, Massachusetts to found Saint Benedict Center in Richmond, New Hampshire. The Center in Richmond is made up of a monastery of men, and convent of women, a school, and a chapel where the traditional rites of the Church are offered. It serves as the religious and cultural center of a Catholic community in the area.

The pieces in this section pertain to our work in and from Richmond.
