If I were to only consider the absolute excellence of the educational rigor of Priory, I would be blessed to be a part of it. But Priory challenges itself to fire up not only the intellect, but also the pursuit of Christ in daily work. There is no end to the power and peace of working in an environment that puts Christ first in every activity and that offers the stability and guidance of the rule of St. Benedict. The result is a young man who is capable – in mind and soul – to serve and to give the glory of God.
