Great message. Applies to so many staff members at Benedictine each and everyday.

Join as we flip through the pages of “A Love That Impels” by Stephanie Campbell, OSB, and take a look at A History of the Benedictine Sisters of Ridgely, Maryland in this nine-part post series.

The Mile Lane is the well worn path that has led students, staff and visitors to campus for nearly 60 years. Whether the trees lining the road are snow covered or a kaleidoscope of amber during the fall, they have stood the test of time. The view down the lane remains largely unchanged as a timeless welcome to all that enter campus. #benstory
