The „Weggemeinschaft St. Benedikt“ is an open Christian community:
People of different origin seeking God in connection with the Cistercian monastery Zisterzienserkloster Langwaden.
In 2002 the community was inititated by Gabriele Franziska Heitfeld-Panther (oblate). We hold regular meetings.
Monthly day retreats and two weekend retreats a year give us the opportunity to get to know the Cistercian spirituality and to let it bear fruit in our everyday life.
The aim of each meeting is to be on our way with Christ, praying, learning more about our faith and trying to become familiar with the Rule of St.
Benedict and Cistercian roots. Celebrating the eucharist marks the centre of each meeting.
The membership is open, there is no promise.
The community is supported by monks of the Zisterzienserkloster Langwaden, as well as by other monersteries and by several extern priests.
Since spring 2007 Father Heribert Weinbrenner,Cistercian Secular Oblate, has been supporting the community as spiritual advisor.
