|About||The Missionary Benedictines are a worldwide congregation of 19 abbeys and priories. 1100 monks live and work all over the world helping those in need.|
Guided by the teaching of Jesus, embracing Christian values and the “Code of Ethics”, we Missionary Benedictines declare to be good stewards by:
Reaching out to the underprivileged in developing countries, enabling them to help themselves and thus better their life.
Raising funds towards long term development, especially through education on all levels, health care, farming and animal husbandry, being aware that “helping the poor and underprivileged of today will brighten their future.”
Distributing funds to the recipient within our own Benedictine network and monitoring the proper use according to the purpose of project.
Collaborating with the Conference of Mission Procurators of the Missionary Benedictine Congregation of St. Ottilien in approving funding of projects – all our “fundraising efforts” are project-driven and not just “in general."
Father Andreas Amrhein started the Congregation of St. Ottilien in Bavaria. Young people from all over Germany were attracted to the idea of Benedictine life, especially one emphasizing work in foreign missions.
