Note from Sr. Ulrike, 18 June 2020:

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Greetings from the LRB team. We hope the Covid-19 virus is merciful to you and does not affect the life of your community too much. It seems that the situation in Europe is slowly easing. However, the news from North and South America, Africa and Asia is still worrying.

After having had to cancel the LRB course for 2020, we would now like to announce the date for the 7th LRB course 2021:

Sunday, 25 July 2021, beginning at 19:00, to Friday, 06 August 2021 into the late evening. Departure will be Saturday morning.

The fees remain unchanged compared to 2020. This is only possible thanks to the generous support of the Foundation Benedict and AIM. We are very grateful for this!

Registrations are possible until 28 February 2021.

Those who had already registered for the course in 2020 and now wish to participate in 2021 will be given preference.

Let us hope that the world has recovered from Covid-19 by then. Remain protected.

Sr. Ulrike Soegtrop

Management training for today’s monastic leaders


Unprecedented developments are changing our monasteries and making leadership much more demanding. Outside pressures, inside challenges and cultural changes are making monastic leaders wonder:

  • who can help us to understand, distinguish and decide?
  • what approaches and tools are available to help us deal with these challenges?
  • how can we initiate in good time needed changes without losing our identity?

We can help!

“Leadership and the Rule of Saint Benedict” is a joint educational project of the universities of St. Gallen in Switzerland and Sant’Anselmo in Rome. We have assembled a faculty of international experts and experienced leaders from the Benedictine family who will help you to frame the challenges facing your monastery and show pragmatic ways to handle them. The first course took place in 2014. Based on the experience gained, the course could be tailored more and more to the needs of the participants in the following years. In the meantime, about 150 people have completed the course. By the end of the program, you will be equipped to shape your best response to those challenges.
