Spirituality and the Arts at the Monastery of St. Gertrude

Spirituality and the Arts program at St. Gertrude presents dynamic performances and retreats that engage artistic expression as devotion and the deepening of spirituality through creativity.

 

Mission Statement of Spirituality and the Arts at St. Gertrude

 

“In the spirit of St. Benedict who encouraged expression of artistic gifts in the monastic community, the Benedictine Sisters of Cottonwood, Idaho seek to integrate spirituality and the arts. Since we believe art is the domain of every human being, we endeavor with artists, through dialogue and hospitality, to contemplate, to express and to explore the unity and mystery of all creation.

 

Working with others, we hope to foster an artistic environment and be present to the many manifestations of beauty in our world and to nurture new artistic possibilities. By embracing the profound mystery of artistic experience, we aspire to the transformation of individuals and the world.”
